Delius's first opera, Irmelin, was composed in 1890-2. The libretto, by Delius himself, is based on a fairy tale. The opera remained throughout his life in manuscript and, as far as can be ascertained, never received a performance, though the Prelude is often heard.
Delius's third opera. Koanga, written between 1 895 and 1897, is based on ' The Grandissimes', a novel of Creole life by George W. Cable. It was not performed in England until 1935, when Covent Garden produced it during an autumn season of opera. Delius spent some years in Florida as a tea planter and it was during a second visit there that he composed most of the music to Koanga.

: REGINALD KING QUARTET

Reginald King has that flair for a very rare thing-the composing of melodious music and the putting over to the best advantage of the melodious music composed by others. He has been broadcasting for ten years, and is among the few whose compositions are regularly broadcast by other light-music combinations.
Last Christmas he replaced the Celebrity Trio with the Reginald King Quartet. The addition of a viola gives breadth and colour to the ensemble.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
