: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

EMILIE WALDRON
(Soprano)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY
BAND
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
THE play Ruy Blas , which Mendelssohn described as 'inconceivably contemptible,' was to be performed for the benefit of the Theatrical Pension Fund. Mendelssohn's name was wanted as a 'draw,' so ho was asked to write the Overture. For this he said he had no lime ; but ho composed a Romance instead, for the play. The officials who were getting up the performance replied, probably quite innocently, that he would be given longer notice next year. This answer nettled Mendelssohn, who, in the midst of much other work, wrote this Overture in two days. For the next performance, he said, he would call it the ' Overture to the Theatrical Pension Fund.'
Later, he revised the work, and it is the second that has become the standard version.

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.

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.
