: 'RING UP THE CURTAIN

Favourite tunes from the operas on gramophone records
No. 2—' La Bohème'
Presented by Anna Instone
Owing to unforeseen circumstances Anna Instone 's programme of Puccini's La Bohème had to be postponed from November 23 until this afternoon. It may be useful to remind listeners that the story of La Bohème, one of Puccini's most popular operas, is concerned with the lives and vicissitudes of a group of Bohemians in the Latin Quarter of Paris.
Miss Instone, who studied at the Royal Academy of Music under Max Piarni and Theodore Holland , is herself a pianist and composer. For some years now she has played a leading part in BBC gramophone programmes of serious music, and she has been responsible for some of the most interesting illustrated talks that have been put on the air.

: BRITAIN AND ITS MUSIC

Southern Scotland
Devised and produced by Moultrie R. Kelsall and Ian Whyte
Catherine Mentiplay (contralto)
George Fleming (baritone)
This week's programme on the theme of Britain and its music moves the scene to Scotland. Tonight's concert will be concerned with the songs and music of that lovely countryside which stretches from the Borders up to the estuary of the Forth on the east coast.
There is a rich heritage of ballads inspired by the battles that have been fought around the Border country, many of them stirring as the fights they commemorate, and some sad songs too, in lament for the brave lives that were lost. As the landscape changes to the coast, so the songs tell a different tale. There one meets with the call of the sea and the work of the fishermen as portrayed in the fishwives' cry of ' Caller herrin' '. Contrasting with this again is the gaiety of Willie's gane to Melville Castle ', telling of a lover who found all the daughters of the house so charming that he could not decide on the one to choose.

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.
