: A DEBATE

' THAT OPERA IS ABSURD ' between
Mr. OSDERT SITWELL and Mr. BASIL MAINE
; Sir LANDON RONALD in the Chair
Relayed from the Fyvie Hall, The
Polytechnic, Regent Street
To the unmusical, opera is merely a gigantic joke, a senseless mystery that can never be explained. Even amongst musicians one occasionally hears voices raised in doubt-doubt as to whether opera is really a true medium for art, whether these operas that cannot be overlooked are any more than successful tours de force.
Mr. Osbert Sitwell is a prominent member of a family (at times one feels almost inclined to call them a faction) noted for their pronounced and original views, and readers of his books will know how competent he is to keep up an end in any discussion on aesthetics. Mr. Basil Maine is the music critic of The Spectator, and a frequent broadcaster, and Sir Landon Ronald , the chairman, is amongst the most distinguished musicians in the country, hut though lie is conductor of the Royal Albert Hall Orchestra , lie has had no direct connection with opera for some considerable time, and his presidency will therefore be untainted by any personal feeling on that account.

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.
