THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA
(Leader, FRANK CANTELL) Conducted by Joseph Lewis
THE little two-act comic opera, The Wtdding of Camacho, based on an episode taken from 'Don Quixote ,' is an even more youthful work of Mendelssohn's than the Midsummer Night's Dream Overture. He was only sixteen when ho composed it.
The story goes that he submitted it to Spontini, who was at that time largely responsible for the music of Berlin, one with whom the Mendelssohns had very little in common. Oddly enough, Spontini was at the time living in a house which had once been the Mendelseohns', and we are told that when Felix was visiting him there, about the possibility of producing Camacho, Spontini led the boy to the window and pointed to the great dome of a Roman Catholic church across the street, telling him, 'My friend, you must have ideas as great as that cupola.' The little opera was. however, produced in Berlin two years later, in 1827, and met with a very warm reception, although, through various accidents, it was never again performed there.

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.
