: FROM THE LIGHTER CLASSICS

THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THESE are two serenades sung by Count Alma-viva to Rosina. the jealously-guarded ward of Doctor Bartolo. The first air comes very soon after the opening of the Opera, at dawn outside Rosina's house. The other serenade is the Count's response to Rosina's request that she may know the name of her lover.
IN Handel's Cantata the Shepherd Acis, in spite of the appeals of his friends to stay and join in their pleasures, hastens to his fair one, Galatea, and thus pours out his love for her : —
Love in her eyes sits playing, . And sheds delicious death !
Love in her lips is straying.
And warbling in her breath !
Love on her breast sits panting,
And swells with soft desire :
No grace, no charm, is wanting,
To set the heart on fire.
I AGO, pursuing his aim of making Othello doubt the faithfulness of Desdemona. tells of Cassio's talking in his dreams other, and of his having her handkerchief in his possession. Othello's frenzy rises, and he kneels and calls on ' yonder marble heaven ' to witness his oath of vengeance. Iago' joins his oath to Othello's.

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.
