The Station Orchestra: Conductor, Joseph Lewis

This Overture was actually written for a 'melodrama' called The Magic Harp, not for the play of Rosamunde.
It starts with an Introduction in a bold style, after which comes the First Main Tune, in the Violins, very softly. Its springing theme is full of fresh-air gaiety. The Theme is a little enlarged upon, and the Second Main Tune comes as the most perfect contrast. It is given out by Clarinet, and Bassoon, an octave apart, while the Bass Strings sustain a low note, which is called a 'pedal.'

Favorite Operatic Arias
Luigini was a French composer who at one time conducted the Opera Comique. He wrote some operas himself but is remembered only for his Ballet Music.
He seems to have a special interest in national characteristics as displayed in dance music, for he wrote a Russian Ballet and a Turkish Carnival, besides this Egyptian Ballet, which is the most popular of his works. (Doris Vane)

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.
