: JANE AUSTEN.

An hour's programme has been arranged in honour of Jane Austen , to-day being the 150th Anniversary of her birth. In this Scena, arranged by Edward Weaver , the aim has been to reproduce, as far as we may, one of the musical parties so often described by Miss Austen in her novels. In one of her letters she writes :
" The Music was extremely good. It opened ' (tell Fanny) with 'Poike de Parp pirs praise pof Prapela,' and of the other glees I remember ' In Peace Love Tunes,' ' Rosabelle,' ' The Red Cross Knight,' and ' Poor Insect.' Between the songs were lessons on the harp, or harp and pianoforte together..... All the performers gave great satisfaction by doing what they were paid for, and giving themselves no airs."
The Artists taking part in this
Scena are :-
ANNETTE BLACKWELL
(Soprano).
SIDONIE GOOSSENS
(Harpist), and a small orchestra and chorus, directed by STANFORD ROBINSON. ..
The Scena will include a short dramatic sketch, “ Lady Catherine's Visit," arranged by ROSINA FILIPPI , from " Pride and Prejudice."
Characters :
Lady Catherine de Burgh. Elizabeth Bennett.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
