THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRANK CANTELL
AMONG the many plays of Shakespeare, for which
Sir Edward German wrote inoidontal music, was Much Alto ab?ut Nothing, produced by the late Sir George Alexander in 1898 at the St. James' Theatre. No more need be said of it than this, that it is admirably suited to the merry play, and that the dances, of which two are to be played this evening, aro- instinct with all the grace and charm which have made German's music so popular.

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.
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.
