: 'THE CHEROKEE' (Act 11.)

A Ballad Opera. Libretto by James Cobb. Music by Stephen Storaee.
Relayed from the Little Theatre, Leeds
Cast :
In Act 1. Colonel Blandford and the Cherokee Chiefs conclude a treaty.and bury the hatchet. Malooko, in his hatred for Blandford, returns, disinters it and plots the destruction of Bland. ford and all the English settlers.
Tho scene of Act II. is laid partly outside Zelipha's cottage, and partly in and around old Average's house.
STEPHEN STORACE , a short-lived composer of English Opera (lie died at thirty-three), was the son of a clever Italian player of the Double Bass, who settled in England in the second halt of the eighteenth century.
The Cherokee, first heard at Christmas. 1794, and revived in 1802, has probably not been produced since then. Listeners have here an excellent opportunity of getting an idea of typical English Opera at the end of the eighteenth century.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
