Directed by Lieut. GEORGE MILLER TO-NIGHT we have one or two of the less familiar items in Peer Gynt. In this first selection there are three pieces : - Early Morning. Does there exist any truer expression in music of the subtle thrill of dawn ? Ingrid's Lament. Early in the play the reckless
Peer, at a Norwegian wedding, seizes the bride and carries her off to the mountains, only to leave her as soon as his feckless mind demands a change. Arabian Dance. Peer is in Morocco, and the Arabs perform a dance in his honour. FODEN WILLIAMS will Entertain
BAND STORM at Sea. After his adventure in Morocco, Peer takes ship for the North Sea. A storm arises and, the ship foundering, the passengers have to take to the lifeboats. Solveig's Song. The maiden whom in early days Peer loved has remained true to him. Ho returns home to find her sitting at the door of the little hut he built for her, and to hear, as his troublous life ends, this song of her simple trust.
: Dance in the Hall of the Mountain King. Peer falls among goblins, who torment him and dance round him in mockery. FEW Composers of to-day have so captivatingly happy a style in light music as has Roger Quilter. His Overture consists of a musicianly stringing together of the following nursery songs : Boys and Girls Come Out to Play, Upon Paul's Steeple Stands a Tree, Dame Get up and Bake Your Pies, I Saw Three Ships Come Sailing By, Sing a Song of Sixpence, There was a Lady Loved a Swine, Over the Hills and Far Away, The Frog and the Crow, A Frog he Would A-Wooing Go, Baa, Baa, Black Sheep, Here we Go Round the Mulberry Bush, and Oranges and Lemons.

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.
