THE older Gilbert and Sullivan enthusiasts among our listeners will remember that during the long run of The Gondoliers, the opera which was given at Windsor by Royal Command, an unhappy quarrol separated Gilbert and Sullivan, and broke their partnership for some years. It was during the interim that Sullivan composed Haddon Hall to Sydney Grundy's libretto. When the two old friends composed their differences, it is not too much to say that the peace was hailed with something like national rejoicing. Utopia Limited was the first result of their renewed collaboration. the thirteenth in order of date, of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas. It Was a real success on its production and ran for about ten months. (Soloist, Sorgt. A. BETTINSON> )
Tms, one of the best known and most universallv popular of all the Verdi arias, is sung in the first Act of La Traviata by the heroine Violetta.
Guests have been in her salon, making merry, and Alfred, in whose arms she dies at the end of the opera, after all the obstacles to their wedding have been overcome too late, has sung a merry drinking song. Meditating on the love which he has declared for her, she repeats the melody of his song, and then, suddenly changing, as though doubtful whether so true an affection can come to one like her, she dashes into the brilliant' ever free shall I still hasten madly on from pleasure to pleasure.'

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.
