MAY HUXLEY (Sopraro)
Softly sighs the Voice of Evening (Der Freischiitz) (The Marksman).............. Weber BAND
First Mephisto Waltz .. Liszt, air. R. T. Chilton
A Dedication ......................... Franz Fair House of Joy .................... Quiller List to mo, Rosebud................... Korbag
Overture, The Wreckers ........ Ethel Smyth
IN this prelude to an opera which tells a grim story of coastal wrecking of ships for the purpose of plunder, religious fervour incredibly allied to this practice in the character of the Cornish natives, the condemnation of the lovers to death by drowning in a smugglers' cave, and a strange mingling of romance and cruelty, Dame Ethel Smyth has brought together the main themes of the opera which illustrate these incongruous but closely related elements. The Wreckers had its first performance in Leipzig in 1906, was given in London before the War, and in two or three seasons after it, the most recent being in September last at Covent Garden Theatre. Listeners will remember that it was then broadcast.
'Tis a Madness .................... (Figaro) Alleluja .......................... Mozart
Oriental Fantasy, Islamey
Balakirev, arr. R. J. F. H.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
