THE BBC MILITARY BAND

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.
Conducted by William J. Matthews
Frank Titterton (tenor)
Lalo's most successful opera was not performed until he was sixty-five. As has so often happened in the history of music, recognition came to him only after long and patient striving and considerable hardship. The opera was an immediate success, and won the prize of the French Academy. Not only that, but it reached its hundredth performance almost within a year of its production.
The story is of a mythical kingdom of Ys, of love and of warfare between two neighbouring kings, and at the end the King's daughter, to save her father's realm, gives herself to the sea as a sacrifice. The patron saint of Ys rises from the waves to receive her, and the waters go back from the land that they had threatened to overwhelm.

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.
