Anthem, 0 Thou, the central orb
(C. Wood)
0 thou the centra! orb of righteous love. Pure beam of the most high eternal light
Of this our wintry world, thy radiance bright.
Awakes new joy in faith, hope soars above.
Come. quickly come, and let thy glory shine,
Gilding our darksome heaven with rays divine ;
Thy saints with holy lustre round thee move.
As stars about thy throne, set in the height
Of God's ordaining counsel. as thy sight Gives measured grace to each, thy power to prove.
Let thy bright beams disperse the gloom of sin.
Our nature all shall feel eternal day,
In fellowship with thee, transforming day To souls erewhile unclean, now pure within. (By permission of H. F. W. Deane and Sons, the Year Book Press, Ltd., and of Xovello and Co., Ltd.)

: Glyndeboume Festival 'DON PASQUALE'

Act 1 of the opera by Donizetti from the Glyndeboume Festival
Opera House
The action takes place in Rome
Scene 1, A room in Don Pasquale 's house
Scene 2, A room in Norina's house
Cast in order of appearance
The Glyndebourne Festival Orchestra
The Glyndebourne Festival Chorus
Conductor, Fritz Busch
Producer, Carl Ebert
Don Pasquale is the tale of an old man, a wealthy bachelor who, with the delightful impetuosity of characters in Italian opera, has become possessed of a desire to marry. It is evidently the idea of marriage in the abstract that has attracted him. From the heedless way in which he accepts his fate, it appears to be immaterial whom he marries.
Like all self-centred materialists he wants to exclude others from happiness similar to his own, and when his nephew Ernesto (tenor) tries to marry Norina (soprano) he is furious. Ernesto ' expects' financially from the old man's will. Hence his quandary. It is significant that the person who arranges the mock marriage betweei old Pasquale (bass) and Norina, disguised as a young girl straight from the convent (she is In reality a lively widow), is Malatesta the doctor.
Finally, owing to the intervention of Malatesta, Pasquale agrees to the marriage of Norina and Ernesto.
Act 2 will be broadcast in the Regional programme at 7.40

: THE FINEST STORIES IN THE WORLD-1

'Ruth'
Cast
Production by Val Gielgud
This is the first of a series of dramatised stories from the Bible. There is no need to look far for first-rate Bible stories, and in those of Ruth, Elijah, and Daniel—the first three of the series—listeners should not be disappointed.
The story of Ruth, while stressing as its moral the reward of devotion, hat a peculiar charm that has never failed to catch the imagination of those who read it.

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.
