LILY ZAEHNER (Mezzo-Soprano)
THE DORIAN TRIO
As simple as the better known Largo, this song of Handel's is one of those which would of itself have ensured an immortal name for its composer. The opera from which it comes has a special interest for us, as having been the first which Handel produced in this country. He arrived here at a time when the fashionable world had no great interest in any music except Italian opera, and he wrote this to an Italian text in the amazingly short time of only two weeks. It was produced with real success at the old Queen's Theatre in the Haymarket, in 1710. The new-comer did not meet with universal applause at the hands of the critics, and the satirical comments on Rinaldo by Steele and Addison, in the Spectator and Taller of those days, make interesting. though rather pathetic, reading even now.

: ' COX AND BOX'

By F. C. BuRKAKD and ARTHUR SULLIVAN
Produced by JULIAN HERBAGE
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
'COX AND Box ' was Sullivan's first essay in the form which afterwards brought him such universal fame. The text was adapted from the famous farce, Box and Cox, by Bumand, happily remembered as editor of Punch, and the first performance was a private one in a London house. Sullivan was given exactly a fortnight to compose the work, but in spite of the speed at which it had to be produced, it is a real gem of its kind which has ever since been popular. Its first public performance was by the German Reeds in whose hands it had a long run, and it was afterwards taken over by the D'Oyly Carte Company.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
