: HENRY WOOD PROMENADE CONCERT

Joan Alexander (soprano)
Kathleen Long (piano)
Marcel Dupre (organ)
London Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, George Stratton )
Conducted by Basil Cameron
Weber's opera ' Der Freischiitz is based on an old German legend which tells of magic bullets that never miss their mark. Max; the young forester, is anxious to win a shooting contest, and with it the hand of Agatha, daughter of the chief ranger. The first aria is sung by Agatha in Act 3; she expresses her foreboding in face of the approaching contest, but consoles herself with the thought that heaven will give righteousness its just reward. The second aria is sung in Act 2 by Agatha's cousin Ann, who has a much simpier philosophy of life. All she desires, she says, is that some charming young man shall come as quickly as possible and marry her.
Vincent D'lndy , the centenary of whose birth is being celebrated this year, spent most of his leisure time at his family home in the mountains of Vivarais, and his Symphonic Montagnarde is based on a song such as he might have heard the peasants singing there. The song is played at the outset by the cor anglais, and occurs in aU three movements.

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.

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.
