: A Symphony Concert

(From Bournemouth)
No. XI of the Summer Season
THE BOURNEMOUTH MUNICIPAL AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA
Conducted by Sir DAN GODFREY (Soloist, ALBERT VOORZANGER)
Tannhauser was completed in 1842, when Wagner was 29. Already in this opera, as even before it in The Flying Dutchman, Wagner is beginning to feel his way towards the use of leading motives, but the work is still opera in the sense that it consists largely of separate numbers. Wagner made his own libretto for the work, using two of the oldest and most interesting legends in the German folk lore. One was the old story of the song contest in the Wartburg, a hall which may still be visited today, where the Minnesingers strove for no smaller prize than the hand of the Land-grave's niece, Princess Elisabeth.
The other legend dates back to the very early days of Christianity, when it was matter of common belief that the old heathen gods and goddesses had taken refuge in remote parts of the world, to which mortals still sometimes found their way. According to the German legend, Venus, with all her attendant nymphs and witchery, had hidden herself amongst the remote mountains of the Horselberg, where she held her court in unfading youth and beauty.

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.
