Relayed from the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne
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 Irish composer of Maritana. He is not to be confused, by the way, with the William Wallace of our own times, composer of the Freebooter Songs, one of which we are shortly to hear. This Wallace was born in 1814 and died just over sixty years ago. He wrote, among other things, half a dozen Operas, but Maritana was the only really successful one.
JUST about 200 years ago Handel became a naturalized Englishman. A month later he produced the opera Scipio, from which we are to hear an Air.
It ran for only thirteen nights. Except for one or two numbers, it was a complete failure.
In the Air Hear me, ye winds and waves, we have a fine example of the force and dignity that
Handel could so well express in song.
CARISSIMI, the famous seventeenth-century writer of Oratorios and Cantatas, presents in this song not the common conception of the triumph of love, but the unusual one of the lover's emphatic renunciation of it, and his outburst of satisfaction at being freed from its power. ORCHESTRA
Fantasia on Verdi's ' Rigoletto '

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.
