: Debate

between Miss Rose Macaulay and Mr. L. Du Garde Peach (L. du G. of Punch) on the question 'IS CHIVALRY DEAD?'
In the Chair Col. the Rt. Hon. Josiah Wedgwood, M.P.
Relayed from The Faculty of Arts Gallery
Has chivalry survived the Suffragette movement and the emancipation of women, the shingle and the knee-length skirt, the drive for equal citizenship and the single standard and all the rest of it? It is a most diverting topic, and it is in good hands tonight. Miss Rose Macaulay (the author of 'Told By An Idiot,' 'Dangerous Ages' and Potterism is one of our most brilliant writers and debaters. 'L. du G.' is by now almost as well known to listeners as to readers of Punch. And presiding over the debate is one of the most popular Members of Parliament - the Rt. Hon. Josiah Wedgwood. Listeners will be sure to hear plenty of good talk from these three tonight.

: ' IL TROVATORE' (ACT IV, Scene I)

Performed by the BRITISH NATIONAL OPERA COMPANY
Relayed from Liverpool
Conductor. JOHN BARBIROLLI
IL TROVATORE, or The Troubadour, concerns the love of Manrico (Tenor), a troubadour, for Leonora (Soprano), who is also loved by the Count di Luna (Baritone). There is additional dramatic interest in the fact that these two are brothers, though neither knows this. for Manrico was stolen when a child by the gipsy woman Azucena (Mezzo-Soprano), who brought him up as her son.
Manrico and Leonora are about to be married, when they hear that Azucena has been captured by the Count, who; on discovering that she is (as he believes) Manrico's mother, has ordered her to be tortured.
Manrieo goes to her rescue, and in Act IV we find him defeated by the Count, and captured and condemned to death. He sings the famous Miserere from his prison cell, Leonora who stands outside joining sadly in the refrain.
- She goes to the Count and promises to give herself to him if he will set her lover free. He agrees, but she poisons herself, and dies in the arms of her lover. The furious Count kills Manrico, and compels Azucena to see him die, learning from her, too late, that he has murdered his brother. -

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.
