THE AUGMENTED STATION ORCHESTRA:
Conductor, T. H. MORRISON. "Bergliot." A Dramatic Recitation with Orchestral Accompaniment. Words by Björnstjerne Bjornson. Set to Music by Edward Grieg. The motive of this little master-piece is founded on a chapter in the Saga of Harold Hardrada. Bergliot, the wife of Einar Tambarskelvir, is represented lamenting the death of her husband and son treacherously killed by King Harold and urging her tribesmen to take vengeance. The tribesmen do not respond to her exhortations, and suddenly a change of mood comes over her; she realizes that vengeance belonged to the days in which Odin, the lord of Valhalla, whom she renounced in childhood, was worshipped, and that, if vengeance is to be taken at all, it is not for her, but for the new God of Nazareth to exact it. Crude as is the attitude to the new God, the lament has the pathos of showing the early glimmerings of Christianity in Norway and the recognition in the mind of a bereaved woman that vengeance must be renounced to the just workings of an all-wise Power. PARKER LYNCH (Reciter). THE AUGMENTED STATION ORCHESTRA.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
