TODAY the Wesleyan, Primitive, and United Methodist Churches of Great
Britain are united, and will be known henceforth as ' The Methodist Church.' All these churches originated in the work of John and Charles Wesley and their helpers in the eighteenth century ; their creed and ecclesiastical systems rare one, and they unite to strengthen and extend their resources and influence. In their new form they will have 5,000 Ministers, 50,000 local preachers, and an estimated community of four millions, and will form the largest Nonconformist Church in this country.

DRECIOSA was a Spanish play, adapted from a novel by Cervantes, and needed music of a Spanish type to make it effective. Weber was asked to write the incidental music for, though he had never been to Spain, he was known to be expert in manufacturing local colour. He had for example, composed excellent music for Schiller's Turandot without having had to go to China. Weber was all the more agreeable to accept the commission since, having finished Der Freischütz, he was contemplating writing an opera on a Spanish subject, and had actually composed some of the numbers. For this purpose he had studied Spanish idioms and rhythms, so that the local colour was safe in his hands. He did, as a matter of fact, get the colour of Spanish music very effectively into the Preciosa music, introducing a number of gypsy rhythms and Spanish National melodies. The complete music of the play consists of an overture and eight other numbers, mostly choruses.
THE plot of Sir Charles Stanford 's most successful opera, which, by the way, was broadcast about two years ago, deals with a conflict 'between Irish lads and English soldiers-' rebels ' and ' tyrants ' as they passionately call each other, and the overture is designed to emphasize this conflict. The composer has included therein two folk-tunes, one Irish and one English. The Irish one is best known to us (from the verses written to fit the music by Alfred Perceval Graves) as ' Father O'Flynn,' but the tune is really that of 'The Top o' the Cork Road.' The English melody is an old marching tune, which even in Cromwell's day was known as ' The Glory of the West.'
The story of the opera is a good one, and the music is written in the manner of a folk-opera by a master of his medium, and a musician with a striking sense of the theatre. It was first given in London in 1896, and has been spasmodically performed since then, yet a dozen such works would provide a hundsome argument for those who sigh for a National Opera.

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.
