ROGER CLAYSON, with 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.
THE writer of these songs, whose String Quartet was broadcast some time ago, and who has also composed a Light Opera, is a Welsh woman composer of today who has been attracted by the lyrical beauty, the colour and spontaneity of the verses from Heine's Song Book.
The thought in each of the songs may thus be summed up :-
Sorrows of Youth, No. 4. When I am with my love, I feel as rich as a merchant who could buy the world. But when I have to part from her, I am a beggar.
No. 14. At first it seemed as if I could not bear it. And I have borne it..... But do not ask me how.
No. 17. When youthful hearts break, the stars look down from heaven and laugh. And they say : ' This mortal love kills people. Only death ends it. But we are not mortal. That is why we last for ever.'
Lyric Intermezzo, No. 32. The blue violets of your eyes, the red roses of your cheeks, the white lilies of your little hends, all bloom like a garden of fresh flowers. But your heart is as dry and withered as a desert.
No. 45. Whenever I hear the song which once my love sang to me, I go out into the wild places and there, alone, give vent to my woe.


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.
