: BBC NORTHERN ORCHESTRA

Conductor, Charles Groves
Wagner
Overture and Venusberg Music (Tannhäuser)
Forest Murmurs (Siegfried)
Overture: The Mastersingers
Apart from the Tannhauser overture, all the music in this programme belongs to Wagner's maturity. The second act of Siegfried, from which the ' Forest Murmurs ' aretaken, was completed in 1857, when Wagner was forty-four, and it was at this pomt that he laid aside The Ring in order to realise two long-cherished ambitions, the operas Tristan and Isolde and The Mastersingers. In between these two works, he found time to revise the Venusberg music in his earlier opera Tannhauser for the Paris production of 1861; this revised version he later dovetailed on to the original overture, for concert performance. The overture begins with the Pilgrims' Hymn, later leading to Tannhauser's song in praise of Venus; the Venusberg music is a Bacchanale portraying the delights and temptations with which Venus tries to hold Tannhauser in thrall.

Other parts played by Harry Carter , Geoffrey Lewis , Robert Mawdesley , and Bernadette Hodgson
The concept of the expanding universe and its relation to infinity in time and space form the climax of the last of these programmes. The two-hundred-inch telescope will enable astronomers to find even more distant heavenly bodies; and light, which provides the link between time and motion, appears to go on forever.

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.
