Tramps in Tuscany-(2) ' More Cities of the Hills '


Conducted by Capt. W. A. FEATHERSTONE
THE Athalie in question is the tragedy of Racine. Mendelssohn wrote music for a performance of it in Berlin over eighty years ago. One piece from it. The War March of the Priests, is well known. The Overture is less frequently heard.
Delibes (1836-01) made his name as a successful composer of Ballet.s and short Comic Operas, but he was anxious to do more serious work. so he attempted a long opera, in three Acts, Le Roi la Dit. It had fair success-more in Germany than in Fiance, which is rather unusual for a French work.


Unknown: Capt. W. A. Featherstone

: ELSIE FITCH (with Orchestra)

IN the familiar air. from the Second Act of Samson and Delilah. Delilah seeks to strengthen her hold on Samson by assuring him of her love. ' Softly awakes my heart at thy voice,' she sings-and Samson is lost.
The second Air comes from Act IV. of Faust. Marguerite, deserted by Faust, is comforted by the youth Siebet, who has promised her absent brother that he will guard her. The lad assures her that. however dark the outlook, ho will be by her side.

SO many North-country men and women reside on the South Coast, or are at present visiting it, that special arrangements have teen made for a Manchester programme to be relayed to Bournemouth this evening. The items to Le played by the Manchester Station Augmented Orchestra are a selection from the very large number of requests received from Bournemouth listeners. This idea of an exchange of programmes between stations is one that will probably become more and more popular as wireless develops, until ultimately we may look forward to a similar exchange between countries.

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.
