(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
The most popularly successful English opera ever written, The. Bohemian Girl , was produced in London in 1843, and it is safe to say that it has been in constant performance ever since. At least, -it has never been out of the repertory of English opera companies, all of whom have at one time or another discovered it to be the best box-office proposition in the operatic list. This song, one of the most popular in the opera, is sung by Arline, a girl of noble birth who, kidnapped as a child by the gypsies, has grown up with them. She has, however, kept a few distant memories of ner childhood, and she now tells Thaddeus, her lover, of a dream in which she found herself back in her father's baronial hall. Michael William Balfe was born in Dublin in 1808, and lived to 1882. Besides this one, he wrote a number of other operas, all of them successful in their day, but now mostly forgotten.
John Liptrott Hatton , a London musician, but Liverpool born, had much success as a song-writer in the middle of last century; his To Anthea was made famo.us by Santley, who saug it often. His part-songs, of which he wrote a great number, are still very popular with choral societies.
Sir Henry Bishop was a very busy man in the London operatic world at the beginning of the last century.He composed a number of operas himself, adapted an even greater number of European operas for the English stage, helped to form the Royal Philharmonic Society, wrote an opera—Aladdin—for Drury Lane which was to rival and utterly eclipse Weber's Oberon at Covent Garden-and did not-held, one after another, the posts of Musical Director of both these theatres, and of Vauxhall Gardens, was appointed to the Musical Professorship at Edinburgh and the Chair of Music at Oxford, was knighted for this service, and made Doctor of Music for that, and is now remembered by two or three songs, ' My pretty Jane,' ' Lo, here the gentle Lark,' and ' Home, Sweet Home.'

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.
