: IRELAND v. SOUTH AFRICA

A Running Commentary by W. P. COLLOPY on The INTERNATIONAL RUGBY FOOTBALL MATCH
Relayed from LANSDOWNE ROAD, DUBLIN
(This commentary is under the direction of the Dublin Broadcasting Station)
(From Belfast)
THE Springboks will have a great welcome at
Lansdowne Road this afternoon; a week's rest after their match with Ulster of last Saturday will have brought them back into their best form. They were in need of this '.breather.' Last year Ireland, with some of the old guard gone or past their prime, was unable to field a team comparable with some of her National sides of the past. However, this season they should be good enough to give South Africa a very hard game and possibly a beating if the luck runs their way. In Dublin they still talk of that wonderful game against the Springboks of 1906, when Ireland were within a goal of beating them. This match produced one of the finest tries ever scored in an International game, when Basil Maclear made a run of fully seventy-five yards across the visitors' line. Perhaps Captain Wakelam will have equally thrilling events to describe to us from the commentator's box to-day; we know that it will be a fine and a hard game with no quarter given and none asked : Ireland's Rugby is like that.

Rossini
Performed by THE COVENT GARDEN OPERA COMPANY
Relayed from THE PRINCE OF WALES
THEATRE, BIRMINGHAM
Act II—A Room in the house of Dr. Bartolo
Conductor, JOHN BARBIROLLI
THE Barber is the Figaro of Mozart's merry opera, and though Rossini's appeared long afterwards, the play by Beaumarehais on which it is founded preceded the one which Da Ponte adapted for Mozart. It shows us Figaro helping to win the lady Rosina for his patron, the Count Almaviva, despite the jealous care in which she is kept by her old guardian, Dr. Bartolo.
In the second act, the Count, disguised as a soldier, makes his way into Bartolo's house, on the plea that he has been billeted there : he contrives to have a few whispered words with his lady bofore ho is discovered and turned out. His next ruse, also an invention of Figaro's, is to announce himself as a singing master; he has come to give Rosina a lesson in place of Basilio, who, he says, is ill. Under the guiso of instruction in singing, tho young people plan an elopement, and the Count is given the key of the balcony window. The scene is one of tho merriest in comic opera, and the prima donna has always taken advantage of her lesson to sing a brilliant piece of her own choice which is not in the score. Complications ensue when Basilio himself turns up, in bland ignorance of his supposed illness, and again the Count has to retire. Bartolo has meanwhile secured a love-letter written by the Count to Rosina, and by assuring her that it is meant for another lady, so works on her jealous feelings that she agrees, in pique, to marry her old guardian. In the nick of time, however, Almaviva arrives by way of the balcony, explains the deception, and marries the lady under Bartolo's very nose. But even the old doctor is made happy by having the dowry handed over to him : that has all along mattered more to him than the bride, and Almaviva is wealthy enough without it.

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.
