THE B.B.C. LIGHT ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THOMAS, although known almost solely now by Mignon, was the composer of at least twenty operas and full-sized ballets which enjoyed great popularity in the second half of last century. In his own day, indeed, he was easily the most popular of composers for the Paris stage. The latter part of his life was spent, however, in teaching, as head of the famous Paris Conservatoire, a post which he held for twenty five years. It was the success of his opera Hamlet, following on Mignon, which won him that distinction, and to Mignon he owed also the award of the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour which was given to him on the occasion of its thousandth performance.
The opera Raymond, of which only the Overture is now played, although that is well known and popular, appeared in 1851. MEROK is a tiny village in Norway, situated at the head of the Geirangerfjord. Gaunt hills of grey and black granite, from four to five thousand feet in height, rise almost straight up from the water's edge and cast their reflection in the glassy stillness of the fjord.
This work, which is written for a small orchestra, incorporates a Norwegian folk-song, heard at the outset as an oboe solo.

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.
