'The Humour of Tragedy '

: Schubert

VARIOUS Songs, interpreted by FRANKLYN KELSEY .-
Der Sieg (Victory)
Der Zurnende Barde (The Angry Bard)
Nachtviolen (Violas)
Orest auf Tauris (Orestes in Tauris)
Der Entsuhnte Orest (The Stainless Orestes)
Philoctet (Philoctetes)
VICTORY is a song of calm rather than of triumph. ' 'O unclouded life, so pure and deep and clear ! '
In The Angry Bard Schubert indulges his predilection for a galloping accompaniment (of the type usually associated with hunting songs) to express urgent feelings.
Violas (which Fox Strangways renders as Gillyflowers) is a gentle threnody to the days that were.
ORESTES, son of Agamemnon and Clytemnestra, was a famous hero of Greek tragedy. When he had struck his mother dead to avenge his father, whom she had' murdered, a madness seized him of which, as he learnt from Apollo, he could cure himself only by carrying off the statue of the goddess Artemis from Tauris. Thither he journeyed, to find that the Priestess of Artemis was his long-lost sister Iphigenia.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
