Mr. E. L. WOODWARD :' Franco '—II
Last week Mr. Woodward analyzed the deep-rooted desire of France for security from external danger. Tonight he reveals the general character of French political life and the political situation today. The Third Republic, under whose forms France is now governed, is little over fifty years old. Its ministers and officials have had to defend it against critics within the country who. organized in minority groups, have not accepted the republican organization as either ideal or final. A rapid survey of the political changes in modern French history provides the key to the proper understanding of modem French politics.

JOAN CROSS (Soprano)

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section D)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by PERCY PITT
The Bartered Bride is the famous comic opera which made Smetana the most bedoved of all Czech composers. It was first performed in 1866 and since then has spread all over the world, coming at last to England about three years ago when it was broadcast from Savoy Hill. It is now in the repertory of the Covent Garden Opera Company.
Lakmé, the best known opera of Delibes, has an Iudian story,, and the music, particularly that of the song now to he broadcast, has an Oriental ring in it. The complete opera was broadcast in 1929, as was also Charpentier's Louise, an opera having a typical story of Bohemian life in Paris. This song is the one Louise sings to her lover in the third act.
The Jewels of the Madonna contains a great deal of fine and attractive music, but the story, which is of the Italian Gamorra, is a little out of tune with English audiences.
Romeo and Juliet is Gounod's most popular opera next to Faust, the .Balcony Scene contains some of the best music in the opera.
Schwanda the Bagpiper was composed only six years ago and has had a tremendous, vogue on the Continent; it is considered one of the best comic operas of recent years.
Of a much higher order is Puccini's
Gianni Schicehi ; the subtle humour in this opera is irresistible and by some it is considered to be Puccini's masterpiece.
Hiinsel and Gretel, which is an opera of real appeal to children, has been a great favourite for more than twenty years. It is one of the . few operas that has sustained a run in a London theatre.

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
