He surveys the Druidism of the original inhabitants, and the fascinating Mithras cult, so popular among the soldiers of the legions. Ho proceeds to the discussion of the first coming of Christianity to Britain, and its progress through the island.

THE Prophet was John of Leyden, journeyman tailor, innkeeper, and Ireligious zealot, who, with the Anabaptists, made agreat commotion in Europe in the early part of the sixteenth century. Meyerbeer wrote some tuneful and dramatic music for the Opera dealing with these doings, but the only part of it we still hear at all frequently is the Coronation March, which accompanies the crowning of John in Münster Cathedral.
MANY listeners will remember the vogue of Arthur Goring Thomas , one of the comparatively few British composers who had success abroad, as well as at home, with Operas. Thomas was bom in 1850, and studied in Paris and, under Sullivan, at our own Royal Academy (where his work is commemorated by a scholarship bearing his name). Later, he spent some time with Max Bruch. The Carl Rosa Opera Company, attracted by one of the works which was performed at the Academy, commissioned him to write an Opera; the result was Esmeralda (1883), the Opera of fifteenth-century Parisian life, which was played in Germany as well as in England.
The scene of Esmeralda is laid in fifteenth-century Paris. 10.10 JOHN TURNER Songs
ROSSINI took only a little over a fortnight to compose The Barber, Overture and all. The Overture, after being played on the opening night, was lost, it is said, through a copyist's negligence, and the music now played as a prelude to the Opera belongs to another Opera, Elizabeth, brought out the year before The Barber. Most of the music in the Overture fits the light and sparkling work very well. There is first a broad, dignified Introduction, and then a gay, Quick Movement.








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.
