MASSENET (1842-1912) was a brilliant pupil of the Paris Conservatoire, winning the Rome Prize when he was twenty-one, and (after a period during which his music did not make great headway), beginning to win success when he was about thirty. From that time he had continual prosperity. He received the decoration of the Legion of Honour at thirty-four, and two years later he became a member of the Academy of Fine Arts-the youngest member ever elected.
Though he wrote some orchestral works, these are scarcely remembered save as the means by which he became known in the world of French Opera. His songs have kept in favour. Of the twenty-one Operas, not many have survived in England, but Manon was long popular at Covent Garden.
We are to hear the prelude from his music for Racine's tragedy of Phedra. which was produced in 1900. RECENTLY, there was a' concert of Strauss Waltzes at the Royal Albert Hall and London's mellower citizens came in great numbers to nod their grey-wreathed heads or matronly bonnets to the tunes that swayed the world in their youth. In those days Strauss was a magic name, whether it were that of the Johann who saw Queen Victoria come to the throne or his more famous son Johann (1825-1899). who wrote The Beautiful Blue Danube and about 500 other Waltzes.
Nowadays, Waltzes are out of fashion as a form of popular dance music. But considering what the modern fashion is and what many people think of it, to be out of fashion for twenty-five minutes may be looked upon as a restful and pleasant experience.
This Waltz, by Johann the younger, ' The Waltz King,' is his Op. 388. and is based on themes from one of his operettas.

: Mr. A. B. B. VALENTINE : ' Holidays in Britain-IV, Between the Eden and the Lune '

THE charm of the English Lake
District has been an accepted idea ever since the Romantic Poets of the early nineteenth century first began to celebrate it; but many people think of it more as a poets' Paradise than as a very eligible place to make holiday in. In this talk Mr. Valentine will describe that wild mountain country where the largest lakes in England reflect the highest peaks, and tiny villages nestle in the folds of the hills. Also he will bring the Lake District to earth, and give some very practical information about how to get there and where there is to stay.

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.
