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.
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
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.
