A LIGHT ORCHESTRAL 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.
BARRINGTON HOOPER (Tenor)
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOHN ANSELL
DELIBES, who had such success with his charming Ballets, was anxious to produce something more ambitious, on a grander scale, and wrote several works for the Opéra-Comique,' the last of these being the five-act Opera Kassya, which lie did not live to complete. It was finished by Massenet, and produced in 1891, two years after Delibos' death.
LISZT was a great lover of the music of the gipsies of Hungary, and mado a number of their tunes into Rhapsodies-a term he used, so he said, because he felt that it best expressed the epic element in the gipsies' performances. In his book The Gipsies and their Music in Hungary he gives a stirring account of such performances. Most of his twenty Rhapsodies were composed on his return in 1839 from a tour abroad, on which occasion a sword of honour was presented to him by Hungarian nobles. They were Piano solos, and Liszt later arranged some for Piano duet, and orchestrated a few. 9.0 WEATHER FORECAST; SECOND GENERAL NEWS BULLETIN

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.
