Selection of Henry Bishop's Songs SIR HENRY BISHOP, 1786 to 1855, was a considerable figure in the world of opera in his day. He composed a number of operas, more or less original,.but adapted, and it must be confessed distorted, a number of European operas which he gave at Covent Garden Theatre, of which he was for some time Director of Music. Bishop was one of the original founders of the Royal Philharmonic Society. ORCHESTRA Selection of Francesco Tosti's Songs
FRANCESCO PAOLO TOSTI was a favourite song writer and teacher of singing late in the nineteenth century. He was much at Court both in Italy and England as a teacher of singing to the Royal families. He was knighted in 1908 and died in 1916, leaving behind him a great number of melodious songs that had far greater merit than much contempory ballad-writing of his time.

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.
