: LIGHT MUSIC

From Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
THE CALF OF GOLD is a song in which
Mephistopheles derides the simple pleasures of the townsfolk at th ir Easter merrymaking. The only important thing in the whole world is money, he says, and all alike worship at the shrine of the Golden Calf.
DOCTOR BARTOLO. guardian of the fair
Ro,ina. watches her jealously lest lovers more attractive than he should gain her favour. He is told by a friend that Count Almaviva is her lover. The friend, egged on by Bartolo, agrees to start a slander about the Count which, the two hope, will drive him out of Seville.
ONE of Schubert's finest songs in sombre vein is that of The Wanderer, who roams mournfully on through the world, ever seeking an answer to his soul's question ' Where is thy home ? Nature seems dead, and all is but vanity.
' Where art thou, beloved land of happiness ! ' A ghostly voice answers : ' There, where thou art not, there is joy.'
The other scng. so well known and loved, embodies the spirit of Napoleonic glrry. Two of Napole n's soldiers are finding their way back from t e disastrous Russian c mpaign. They reach the frontier of France, and learn, to their bitter sorrow, that their Emperor is captured.
Note how, at the end. as the soldier speaker's imagination is fired, the music leaves the minor and g ea into tl.e major for the rest of the piece, the excitement at last culminating in a snatch of the Marseillaise.

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.

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.
