THE ERNEST LEGGETT LONDON OCTET
AUBREY MILLWARD (Baritone)
TT is a little curious that almost all Composers of Opera have ignored the gayest of Shakespeare's comedies. Nicolai and Verdi, however. both treated Falstaff's comical adventures with conspicuous success. The Overture to Nicolai's Opera is as nimble as Falstaff's wit. It has charming vivacity, and a lightness of touch that the Composer probably acquired through living in Italy.
Nicolai's early home life was hot happy, so he ran away. and was befriended by a lawyer, who helped him to obtain a period of musical study in Berlin. Then he became Organist at the Prussian Embassy in Rome, and some years later became Conductor of the Vienna Opera. Finally he received the appointment of Court Music Master at Berlin, in which city The Merry Wives of Windsor was produced in 1849, only a couple of months before the Composer's death.

' THE BRIDGE'
A Dramatic Episode in One Act . by SETON MALCOLM. Adapted from a short story by PHILIP O'FARRELL
Cast :
THE scene is laid at Olga Werther 's cottage in a forest near Petersdorf, the capital of Valesia, a country in South-Eastern Europe. Her room is barely furnished, a table with some electrical apparatus on it being in the centre, while a writing table is under the window. The room is lit by means of two table lamps, one on each table, while a fire burns brightly in the open fireplace. Outside, a gale is blowing. Ivan is discovered fixing wires to large batteries on the floor, and while he is thus engaged. Olga enters, carrying a cloak and dressing bag.
' CATHERINE PARR ' A Short Historical Dialogue by MAURICE BARING

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.
