From GROSVENOR HOUSE, PARK LANE
ARTHUR GORING THOMAS (1850-1892) composed at least one opera, Esmeralda, that may be regarded as a classic of its kind, though it is now scarcely over performed. It was written to a commission given him by Carl Rosa , whose opera company was, then at the height of its fame and was first produced at Drury Lane in 1883. It was afterwards performed at Cologne and Hamburg, the book was also translated into French; and it was given both !in French and English by the Carl Rosa Opera Company in revivals over a period of years. There is much grace and beauty in the music, and the opera made history as a fine example of the somewhat slender repertory of English operas.

' Etching and Engraving "
A dialogue between
Mr. STANLEY CASSON and Mr. HENRY RUSHBURY
MR. HENRY RUSHBURY , A.R.A., is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painters, Etchers and Engravers. For many years now his prints and drawings have won the greatest respect from critics and discriminating public alike. His drawing of the old B.B.C. headquarters at Savoy Hill, which appeared in these pages a week or two ago, was a typical ' Rushbury '— from the point of view of both technique and subject matter, his preference being always for architectural subjects and what may be called 'townseapes.' Rushbury's work is to be seen in the print room of the British Museum and in the Tato Gallery. For the Imperial War Museum he did a series of drawings of ' London in War-Time.'
He is the second of the group of artists who will meet Mr. Casson before the microphone to explain their aims and methods-and what they think about the public.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section E)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by EDWARD CLARK
DOMENICO CIMAROSA was one of the most important operatic composers of his day, and since the only one of his operas that is still performed is II Matrimonio Segreto (The Secret Marriage), it is the opinion of many scholars that it is time a reviving interest was taken in a number of his other works. Diaghilev, the late impresario of the Russian Ballet, made his contribution to the suggestion some years ago with the ballet Le astuzie feminili, the music of which was drawn from the compositions of Cimavosa.
A is so characteristic of the more advanced modern composer, G. Francesco Malipiero , an Italian composer in about his fiftieth year, straddles the centuries with the stance of his preferences, and with one foot on the border of the future and one on the other side of Beethoven he goes through his intellectual exercises without taking account of the romantic century tha', lies between. For some years, recently, he gave his scholarly attention to the works of Monteverde and a fine edition of his compositions was published under Malipiero's editorship. The present work, La Cimarosiana, an arrangement of certain symphonic fragments of Cimarosa, is without doubt the outcome of a labour of love.

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.
