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.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
