National Orchestra of Wales
Leader, Albert Voorsanger
Conducted by Warwick Braithwaite

The philosopher Faust has sold his soul to Mephistopheles for the gift of renewed youth. The devil, having fulfilled his part of the bargain, helps Faust to win a beautiful maiden. Marguerite. When Faust has betrayed Marguerite, Mephistopheles stands outside her window, with a guitar, and sings an impudent Serenade.

Selection from the Ballet, 'La Source' Delibes
William Anderson and Orchestra
O Isis and Osiris (from ' The Magic Flute') Mozart

Mozart's song is that lovely air sung during the impressive ceremony held in the Temple. The High Priest, Sarastro, accepts two candidates for initiation, and calls on the gods Isis and Osiris. Notice here the unusually imposing tones of the orchestra-there are no Violins, and Trombones play throughout.

Sir Edward German's music was written for Henry Arthur Jones' play The Tempter, when it was produced at the Haymarket early in the century. The music usually played is the Overture, a Cradle Song, and a Bacchanalian Dance.

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.
