Three Songs, poems by Goethe:
Wonne der Wehmuth (Bliss of Sadness) Sehnsucht (Longing)
Mit einem gemalten Band (With a Painted Ribbon)
THE first Goethe song. a very short one, is a plea that to the mourner and to those unhappy in love tears may yet remain, as the only relief and happiness.
Longing expresses the desire to be near a loved one. In imagination the lover flies with the birds, and sings a song to her. She hears, and knows the song is for her. Then his mental image changes, and he becomes a star, at which the beloved looks, wondering and admiring. With such imaginings the lover delights himself.
The last Goethe song is an appeal to the zephyr to waft a ribbon to the maiden, on whose charms the lover rhapsodises. Her smile repays all his love, and he delights in the thought that theirs is a love far stronger than any bond they can exchange.
Alla Danza Tedesco ('In the style of German Dance'), from Quartet in B Flat, Op.130
Six Sacred Songs, poems by Gellert :
Bitten (Prayer)
Die Liebe des Nachsten (The Love of Our
Vom Tode (Of Death)
Die Ehre Gottes aus der Natur (The Praise of God in Nature)
Gottes Maeht und Vorsehung (Go Power and Providence)
Busslied (Song of Penitence)
PRAYER opens with fervent praise of God's
* goodness and mercy, and begs His grace for the suppliant's prayers.
Love of Our Neighbour is a poetic version of the commandment ' Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thvself.' He who says ' I love God * and hates his neighbour is no son of God.
Of Death is an injunction to man to give heed to the solemnizing thoughts of that end to which all must come.
The Praise of God in Nature tells how ' the Heavens declare the Lord's infinite glory . . . and the earth and sea sound His name... Hear, O man, what they tell! He created the stars, and calls from his tent the Sun, coming in brightness from afar, and moving upon his course like a hero.'
God's Power and Providence are exultantly hymned in the next song, a very brief one.
The Song of Penitence is a heartfelt cry for pity upon the sinner who has offended against God's law. Then comes « mood of comfort, as the penitent, remembering God's promises of mercy, feels his heart lighten, and believes that he may yet redeem himself and win again God's favour.

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.
