Sir J. Arthur Thomson, LL.D.: 'Pasteur — 1822―1895: Leader in the Conquest of Disease'
'WORK! ' was Pasteur's last word and his motto in life, and few have worked so hard or to such purpose. Pasteur rescued the French silk trade from ruin by his study of silk-worms, and discovered the cure for hydrophobia in men and rabies in dogs. Franco owes a tremendous debt to Pasteur's genius for applied research: the money value of his discoveries was estimated to exceed the whole war indemnity paid by France after the Franco-Prussian War of 1870. But he was content to remain poor, ' solving,' as he said, 'the problems of the world of the infinitely small.' Drinkers, incidentally, have particular reason to pause and thank Pasteur, for he applied himself so successfully to the study of fermentation and the diseases that affect wine and beer that he became virtually the father of modern brewing.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section F)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by EDWARD CLARK
BETWEEN the production of Les Huguenots in 1836 and that of Le Prophète in 1849, Meyerbeer composed only one opera and some incidental music to his brother Michael's drama Struensee. As a matter of fact, ho was busy on other matters. He was, for example, a man of very kindly feelings towards his brother musicians. Weber thought a great deal of Meyerbeer, and the feeling was reciprocated. Meyerbeer, after Weber's death, did a great deal to get his operas produced in Germany, particularly at the Berlin Opera House, where he had been appointed Gonoralmusikdirektor. He had recently produced Eiiryanthe there, and his next big production was to bo Wagner's Rienzi. He had been both helpful and encouraging to Wagner during the latter's distressful days in Paris, and he was doing his best again to help him. Therefore ho was composing but little. This Overture, however, has always been considered the most successful of Meyerbeer's essays in sustained instrumental composition, and the wholo of the Struensee music is Meyerbeer at his best.

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.
