Overture, The Wreckers ........ Ethel Smyth
IN this prelude to an opera which tells a grim story of coastal wrecking of ships for the purpose of plunder, religious fervour incredibly allied to this practice in the character of the Cornish natives, the condemnation of the lovers to death by drowning in a smugglers' cave, and a strange mingling of romance and cruelty, Dame Ethel Smyth has brought together the main themes of the opera which illustrate these incongruous but closely related elements. The Wreckers had its first performance in Leipzig in 1906, was given in London before the War, and in two or three seasons after it, the most recent being in September last at Covent Garden Theatre. Listeners will remember that it was then broadcast.

SONIA MOLDAWSKY (Violin)
THE TUDOR SINGERS
Conductor, CUTHBERT BATES
ENGLAND has as rich a repeitory of unaccompanied vocal music as any of the European musical countries. Indeed, in that period called Elizabethan, nowhere did the composition of the madrigal reach a higher standard of quality or more definitely take on a national chaiacter than in England, and the contributions of Byrd, Weelkes, Gibbons, Morley and others form a noble heritage. For this was the music of the times when singing was an accomplishment universal among the educated, and when no country house was complete without its complement of madrigal singers. Times changed, and the pleasant custom of singing madrigals at home was lost, and, of course, the desire to write them. Today, however, our modem English composers are reviving the habit of composing for unaccompanied voices, in an idiom that has its roots in Tudor times; and though the custom of singing at home in a ' domestic consort ' shows no signs of coming back, there is a growing number of amateur societies and groups such as the Tudor Singers to keep the repertory alive.
The Tudor Singers is a body of twelve voices founded by Cuthbert Bates in 1923. They sing only unaccompanied music, not on]y English music of the Tudor period, but music of all periods and of all nationalities.

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.
