An Opera in ThreeActs by W. V. (Libretto by Edward Fitzball ) RELAYED TO DAVENTRY Cast :
(Announcing Notes by JOHN RUSSELL )
SHEEP-FARMING in the Australian bush, playing the Violin to the Governor-General, cruising on a whaler, mutiny, capture by ferocious-rebel Maoris, all these were among the lively experiences of the composer of Maritana.
He is nol, to he confused, by the way, with the William Wallace of our times, composer of the Freebooter Songs, etc.
This William Wallace (he is more commonly known by his second Christian name of Vincent) was born in 1814, and died sixty years ago. He wrote, among other things, half-a-dozen operas; but Maritana was the only really successful one. it has, indeed, ecily made up for the rest as far as popularity goes.
Even those who have never seen the Opera, will hr.il several old friends among the tunes heard to-night. for it is safe to scy that one or another of them has been played or sung somewhere every dry during the last eighty years.
A descriptive booklet containing a libretto of. and notes on, the Opera. will be sent to listeners on receipt of a letter addressed to [address removed], with envelope marked Operatic Booklet, and enclosing a large size 11/2 d. stamped-addressed envelope and 3d. in stamps. Price by calling at the Manchester Station 2d.

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.
