(Leader, Reginald Stead)
Conducted by Vilem Tausky
Livia Rev (piano)
Dvorak's Overture 'Othello' should not be expected to tell the story of Shakespeare's play in detail, for it began life under a different name, the more general title 'Love.' Nevertheless, the slow introduction contains three themes that could easily be related to ideas in the drama, especially in view of the way in which Dvorak treats them during the course of the Allegro: the opening theme (akin to Verdi's Willow Song in key and modal Havour) suggests the innocent Desdemona; the second theme (later to become the main theme of the Allegro') the passionate Othello; and the third, menacing theme, Othello's jealousy. Moreover, the abrupt major ending has something of the same effect as Othello's sudden and magnificent death in drama. Deryck Cooke

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.
