OLIVE GROVES (Soprano)
The LONDON ENSEMBLE QUINTET
VON SUPPÉ'S name is best remembered
I in this country by his Overture Poet and Peasant. It is one of the most popular light Overtures in existence, and ono publishing firm alone has arrangements of it for no fewer than fifty-nine different combinations of instruments. In the course of his busy life he composed, according to one authority, 165 light pieces for the stage, as well as bigger and more important works, including two
Grand Operas, a Mass, and a Requiem, and that list takes no account of such early work as another Mass which was performed when he was only fifteen.
A number of his light operas were given in London towards the end of fast century, but it is now almost solely by such shorter pieces as this bright and melodious Overture that we know him.

: (Daventry only) Mrs. BARBARA WOOTTON : ' Some Modern Utopias—IV, Lytton's " The Coming Race

THIS Utopia of Lytton's strikes one as a, very up-to-date affair; with- its absence of war (which has become sheer annihilation), its manual labour done by automata, and its women as the-stronger sex, it must be honoured on the shelves of Capek and H. G. Wells. At the sarao time it is difficult for the normal man to envisage a country where no work exists, where politics are a farce because they cannot be brought to their ultimate conclusion in war, and where there is no, literature because there is nothing to write about.

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.
