Mr. G. HARRISON BROWN: ' Gerniany-II,
Bismarck, and the Making of a Nation '
It is often forgotten that of all the leading peoples of Europe the Germans were the last to achieve national unity. They owe it primarily to Bismarck, who, during thirty years of control of Prussian policy, worked unremittingly and fought the wars of 1866 and 1870 against Austria and France to achieve his ideal. His dismissal by the young Knisor in 1890—' tho dropping of the pilot '-inaugurated the era of irresponsible imperialism, clumsy diplomacy, and. economic expansion that culminated in 1914. German union was achieved at the price of Prussian domination, supported by monarchy, militarism, and a powerful bureaucracy that neglected deep-rooted elements in many parts of the country that derived from the past. Mr. G. Harrison Brown sketches the legacy of the centuries of disunion, as well as the recent decades of unity, in his account tonight of the making of the German nation.

It is Tonio, the clown, who comes before the curtain to explain that the theme of his play is borrowed from real life, and that the actors, though they appear to be acting, are but flesh and blood, with the passions of other men.
Valentine, brother of Marguerite, and his comrades are returning from the wars. As the rousing lilt of the Soldiers' Chorus dies away,
Faust enters in the company of Mephistopholes, who sings a mocking serenade to Marguerite. Valentine appears. He challenges Faust, the betrayer of his sister, to a duel. Valentine falls, mortally wounded.
At the inn of Lillas Pastia Carmen sings a gypsy song. Later.Escamillo makes a boisterous entrance at the head of a procession of enthusiastic admirers. He sings the famous Toreador Song.
The opera's tragic climax is approaching.
Outside the church, where Santuzza has told Alfio of Lola's infidelity, Turiddu is drinking with his friends. Alfio enters. A challenge ensues. Soon the cry is hoard, ' Turiddu is killed.'

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.
