THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRANK CANTELL WELL and honourably known, not only in his own country, but abroad, too, as a composer of many really beautiful songs, Roger Quilter is no less thoroughly at home in composing for the orchestra. This Suite was written for a children's play which was produced in London at Christmas, 1911—a fairy story based on the old legend that at the end of the rainbow a treasure is always to be found. Four pieces from the incidental music were afterwards set in the form of a Suite. Their names are ' Rainbow .Land and Will o' the Wisp '; ' Rosamund '; 'Fairy Frolic ' and ' Goblin Forest.'

: An Orchestral Concert

FRANK WEBSTER (Tenor)
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
LIKE many of the French composers for the comic opera stage, Edmond Audran was a church organist, too, and composed a good deal of sacred music. Besides a Mass, a Motet, and smaller pieces, he composed a funeral march on the death of Meyerbeer, which was performed in Marseilles. But it was on the comic opera stage that he won his real fame, producing a long series of successful works of a light-hearted order, full of bright and sparkling tunes. Most popular of all was La Maseotte, which in Paris alone has by now been played close on 2,000 times since its production there at the end of 1880.

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.
