The Grosvenor House Orchestra


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.
Directed by JOSEPH MEEUS
ARTHUR GORING THOMAS (1850-1892) composed at least one opera, Esmeralda, that may be regarded as a classic of its kind, though it is now scarcely over performed. It was written to a commission given him by Carl Rosa , whose opera company was, then at the height of its fame and was first produced at Drury Lane in 1883. It was afterwards performed at Cologne and Hamburg, the book was also translated into French; and it was given both !in French and English by the Carl Rosa Opera Company in revivals over a period of years. There is much grace and beauty in the music, and the opera made history as a fine example of the somewhat slender repertory of English operas.

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.
