The Foundations of Music


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.
Song Cycle, 'Die Schone Mullerin' (The Fair Maid of the Mill) and other songs by Schubert
Sung by Roger Clayson (Tenor)

Nachtviolen (Gillyflowers) is a gentle threnody to the days that were.
Cull your rue to spice your sorrow, Pansies if you fear the morrow,
But when sorrow's deepest well is dry Gillyflowers for memory.

Fruhlingsglaube (Faith in Spring). A lovely little rhapsody of delight in Spring, with its promise and proof of new life, and its call to the care-filled heart to rejoice and face the future with good cheer.

Bastlose Liebe (Restless Love). The title has its counterpart in Schubert's music, which has an unquiet accompaniment and fails to settle down in any one key until the last page, on which the words 'Crown of life, Joy without rest, thou art Love,' are much repeated in the key of C Major.


Tenor: Roger Clayson

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.
