BERLIOZ'S SONGS
Sung by KATE WINTER (Soprano) and JOHN ARMSTRONG (Tenor)
KATE WINTER
L'origine de la harpe (The Origin of the Harp)
Petit Oiseau (Little Bird)
JOHN ARMSTRONG
I Je crois en vous (I trust in thee)
Nessun maggior piacere (No greater pleasure)
Le chasseur danois (The Danish
Huntsman)
Berlioz set a number of lyrics adapted from Thomas Moore 's Irish ballads, attracted thereto from the fact of his love for Harriet Smithson , an Irish actress then performing in Paris. Many of them he dedicated to her, though this one, ' The Origin of the Harp ', is dedicated to Moore himself.
' Little Bird', or ' Peasant's Morning
Song ', is from a volume of songs called 'Heath Flowers '. ' The Danish Huntsman ' is a ballad of a child trying to rouse his father, whom he does not realise is dead, to awake and go hunting. In the original it is sot, curiously enough, for a bass voice.

Mr.
ARTHUR BRYANT (Educational Adviser, Bonar Law College, Athridge) : ' The Merchant'
Tonight Mr. Arthur Bryant will discuss the development of the English merchant from mediæval to modern times. An opportunist, this most characteristic of our national types was quick to see what everyone around him wanted ; he satisfied the demand by providing the supply. Sagaciously, he made it his business to be a man of his word, to sell high-quality goods and deliver on time. His reward was the industrial revolution, and the expansion of English trade in the nineteenth century. But he berame apt to live on his laurels, and a danger to his success was the change in things in the generation of the Forsytes. His problem—an increasingly difficult one—was to combine personal touch and enterprise with the modern necessity for large-scale organisation. Hence we see the merchant of old transformed into the big store of today.

: THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA

(Section D)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
CATHERINE STEWART (Contralto)
The composer of this work is a Midland musician, born in Edgbaston, Warwickshire. ' Cleopatra', arranged by the composer from his incidental music for an unpublished drama based on the book by Rider Haggard,'is in five tableaux. The Prologue suggests the brilliance of Cleopatra's court. The second relates how Isis tells Harmarchis that upon him rests the responsibility, and also the glory, of ridding Egypt of the usurper, Cleopatra, who was not one of the people, but an alien. The third is a Nocturne. Cleopatra fascinates Harmarchis as they recline, bathed in moonlight, on a balcony of the palace. In No. 4, Cleopatra dances for Harmarchis, at the end of which dance she discovers the hidden dagger with which Harmarchis would have killed her. In the final movement, after a few bars of an exultant character, we have a repetition of the Prologue as an Epilogue, suggesting Cleopatra's triumphant return to the splendour of the court.

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.
