A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
HILDA BLAKE (Soprano)
GLYN EASTMAN (Baritone)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL ,
WE are inclined to think of Wagner as having been the first to compose operas so long that they begin in the afternoon and finish at midnight. His predecessor, Meyerbeer, however, left at least one opera—L'Africaine—which would take about six hours to perform.
The story of it is in many ways a parallel to
Verdi's Aida, with a fair captive who is a queen in her own country ; and the odd thing is that she is an Indian queen, although the title of the opera calls her an African maid. Hence the appropriateness of the March from the opera, known as the Indian March.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
