RUTLAND BOUGHTON'S zeal in the cause of English opera is of that order by which prophets are inspired. His vision is of an English Bayreuth, at G lastonbury, where music dramas on the Arthur epic can bo given on a festival scale, but with this difference from the Wagner scheme, that they are to be for the crowd and not for the elect. His ideal is not yet fully realized, but he has done all that hard work and ferocious enthusiasm can do, and with results which are already rather wonderful. The achievements of the Glastonbury Players, under his direction, are a landmark in the music of our time ; it was they who first sang The Immortal Hour, the opera which afterwards had the unique distinction of drawing crowded houses for more than one long run in London. Still the best known of his works for the stage, it is, in the judgment of many critics, the most spontaneous, wholly natural in its presentment of the shadowy Celtic atmosphere. The Queen of Cornwall appeared ten years later, following two other music-dramas on the Arthur Legends-The Birth of Arthur and The Round Table. Alkestis, on Professor Gilbert Murray 's English version from Euripides, produced also at Glastonbury, in 1922, came between them.

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.
