First Week-Song Cycle, 'THE MAID o' THE MILL.'
English Translations hy STEUART WILSON and A. H. Fox-STRANGWAYS
Interpreted by STEUART WILSON (with Spoken Explanation of the Story)
THIS Song Cycle comprises twenty songs which
Schubert selected from a set of poems by Wilhelm Muller. In it we follow the fortunes of a miller's apprentice who wanders off to seek a new master, following the course of a winding brook, to which he confides his thoughts. He linds. his new work in a mill to which the brook leads him, and falls in love with the miller's daughter. He thinks ho has won her, but she gives her love to a forest ranger, and the poor iniller-lad, broken-hearted, seeks rest from his grief beneath the waters of the mill-stream, his one constant friend.
The songs were written in 1823, when Schubert had begun to feet more keenly than before the hardness of life, and when he was suffering, for part of the time, from illness (some of the songs were written in hospital).

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.
