: AN ORCHESTRAL CONCERT

Conducted by Gideon Fagan
Imagine for a moment that Othello, Desdemona, and Iago had lived in medieval Germany instead of in Venice, and that they had changed their names to Siegfried, Genoveva, and Golo. Then give the ' tragedy ' a happy ending according to the well-established Hollywood recipe. You will then have the essential features of the story of that legendary figure Genoveva, upon whom Hebbel based his play which Schumann himself fashioned into a libretto for his opera. It was, however, not a success. The best part of the work undoubtedly is the overture which the composer wrote before he began the actual opera. Its typical Schumann opening-a slow introduction full of sombre poetry-is followed by the main quick section in the usual sonata form, a piece of most passionate and stirring music.

: Esme Percy in 'WILLIAM BLAKE'

An impression of a genius and some of the incidents in his life, by Paul Dehn and Felix Felton
The characters :
William Blake , James Blake (his father), Catherine Blake (his mother), Catherine Boucher (afterwards his wife), the Rev. Thomas Mathew ,
William Hayley , Crabb Robinson
Also Flaxman , Cromek, Varly, Linnell, and others of his patrons, friends, and enemies
Produced by Felix Felton
In half an hour, this programme attempts no more than a brief impression of William Blake. It shows his childhood visions, his early life and struggles in London, his visit to Sussex under the irritating patronage of William Hayley , his later life in London when some at least had recognised his genius, and his death. Esme Percy played the part of William Blake in the first broadcast two years ago.

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.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
