(of the Birmingham Natural History and Philosophical Society) : Travel Talk-' The Old Congo and the New.' Frances Adcock (Contralto)


Contralto: Frances Adcock


Conducted by PAUL RIMMER
A S regards overture to ' Robespierre,' we remember the name of Litolff as that of one of the first comprehensive and cheap editions of classical music. It was started by the son of the Litolff whose overture we are to hear, and who. after leading a roving life for some years, settled in Brunswick, and began music publishing. Litolff the elder was renowned in his day as a Pianist. His rank as a composer is not so high, though his Concert Overtures (of which Rohespierre is the best known) have a good deal of excellent melodrama in them.

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
