NOEL EADIE (Soprano)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
ALTHOUGH Verdi's Othello has put Rossini's, on the same Shakespeare tale, completely in the shade, the older work enjoyed a real success in its own day. It made its first appearance at Naples in 1816, and six years later was heard in London at the old King's Theatre. It was given in French in Paris in 1844. The Overture, to be sure, might do duty almost equally well for many of the stories which
Rossini used as subjects, and its name matters much less than its bright and melodious qualities.

THE music of Kenneth Wright , a member of the B.B.C.'s musical staff, is by no means unknown to listeners.
Songs, pianoforte pieces, chamber music, and orchestral music of his have all been broadcast from several of the B.B.C. Stations. That he has original gifts of a really melodious order, and especially that he knows how to set before his hearers in music, not only the poetic and picturesque sides of everyday, but something of the whimsical humour which lurks even in unexpected places, needs no pointing out at this date.
He is very happily at home in dealing with the different aspects of fresh-air scones of the country, as this breezy and wholesome suite makes abundantly clear.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
