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.
WOLF-FERRARI was born in Venice, fifty years ago. The Jewels of the Madonna is an Opera of Neapolitan life, with a good deal of Neapolitan folk-song in its music.
36. Bass Solo. 'Thou art gone up on high.'
37. Chorus. The Lord gave the word; great was the company of the preachers.'
38. Soprano Solo. ' How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace.'
39. Chorus. Their sound is gone out into all lands.'
40. Bass Solo. Why do the nations so furiously rage together ? '
41. Chorus. Let us break their bonds.'
42 43. Tenor Solos. ' Ho that dwelleth in heaven shall laugh them to scorn ' ; and ' Thou shall break them with a rod of iron.'
44. The Hallelujah Chorus. Halleluiah! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.'
45. Soprano Solo. 'I know that my Redeemer liveth.'
46-49. Chorus. These next four numbers are, perhaps, the most dramatic part of the whole work. The subdued, solemn, ' Since by man came death,' is answered triumphantly with ' By man came also the resurrection of the dead ' ; similarly, ' For as in Adam all die,' is answered by ' Even so in Christ shall all be made alive.'
50-51. Bass Solos. Behold, I tell you a mystery : We shall not all sleep ' ; and ' The trumpet shall sound.'
52. Contralto Solo (Recitative). Then shall be brought to pass the saying " Death is swallowed up in victory."
53. Contralto and Tenor Duet. 'O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? '
54. Chorus. 'But thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory.'
55. Soprano Solo. ' If God be for us, who can be against us ? '
56. Chorus. ' Worthy is the Lamb . . . Blessing and honour be unto Him.' 57. Chorus. Amen.'

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.
