In her early days Liza Lehmann was a concert-singer and one of the most popular artists of that day. She first appeared at a Monday Popular Concert in 1885, and for the next nine years she sang often, coming naturally into contact with Clara Schumann , Joachim and others, from whom she received the greatest encouragement. She retired from the Concert platform in 1894 on her marriage to the composer Herbert Bedford. From that date, till her death in 1918, she devoted herself to composition, producing one after another the song-cycles In a Persian Garden, The Daisy Chain and others. All of these are still very popular, and she may be said to have started with them the vogue of the Eong-cycle in this country. Sir Thomas Beecham produced her stage setting of Everyman in 1910, while ten years before, a romantic light opera, The Viear of Wakefielil, had a successful run. Liza Lohmann came of an artistic family ; her father was Rudolf Lehmann , the painter, her mother, the ' A. L.' who, as composer and arranger, so often figures in broadcast programmes, and her' grandfather, Robert Chambers of Edinburgh. a member of the well-known firm of publishers.

STUART ROBERTSON (Bass) Dickens's story of ' The Cricket on the Hearth ' has been the subject of at least two operas, one by Groldmark and the other by Sir Alexander
Mackenzie. The latter opera was completed in 1902, but though it has been several times performed at the Royal Academy of Music, at which Mackenzie was then Principal, it has not yet been publicly performed. Mackenzie has confessed that his idea of writing this opera was to check an unfortunate tendency of his students to take it for granted that opera must be tragic, melancholy and lurid. By taking Dickens's simple story as his text, he at any rate proved that the lighter emotions can be equally well set to music.

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.
