(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRANK CANTELL
LIKE more than one other composer who won an enduing name for himself, Donizetti was destined first for a legal career. For several years, too, he was a soldier, so that in The Daughter of the Regiment, for which he made the Italian version himself, he had a subject with one side of which he was familiar. It was while he was still serving in the army that his first four operas were successfully produced, the fourth of them-long ago forgotten-winning him not only great personal triumph, but release from further army service.
Endowed with a wonderful facility for melodic invention and possessed of unusual energy, Donizetti produced, one after another, a series of operas which achieved real success at Rome, at Naples, and elsewhere. Not until 1830, however, in his thirty-third year, did his fame spread beyond the borders of his native land. It was the opera Anna Bolena , produced in that year, which laid the foundation of his world-wide fame ; it was in it that Lablache. as Henry the Eighth, scored one of his most brilliant successes here in London.
It is sad to have to record that, in his last years, the composer of so much bright and sparkling music, bubbling over with mirth and brave good spirits as it often is, became a prey to melancholy. In 1845, in his forty-eighth year, he had a stroke of paralysis from which he never recovered, dying three years later.

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.
