(Leader, PHILIP WHITEWAY )
Conductor, E. GODFREY BROWN The Yeomen of the Guard, the Gilbert and Sullivan opera which followed Ruddigore, made its appearance in October, 1888, as the eleventh in the long series of the Savoy operas. Both author and composer regarded it as the best work of the whole series, and it certainlv stands out as distinct from the others in more ways than one. The libretto deserts for once the typical whimsical humour for which we have had to add to the language the word ' Gilbertian ', and the music is also on rather more serious lines, lyrically and dramatically.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
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
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
