The Flower of the Seven Tears
A Play in One Act by Froom Tyler
Don Rafael, a wise man
Matias Valera, a writer of comedies

Listeners will not need to be reminded how the whole tragedy of the cycle of music dramas. 'The Ring of the Nibelungs' hangs on the theft of the gold from the three Rhine maidens who guarded it in the depths of the sacred river. The music in which they sing of their loss, and plead for its return, is among the most beautiful parts of the whole great work.
Even in an arrangement for orchestral performance without voices, it is easy to imagine the scene in which the three maidens appear above the waters singing their wistful, pleading melody.


Musicians: National Orchestra of Wales
Writer (The Flowers of the Seven Tears): Froom Tyler

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.
