: A Song Recital

by FLORENCE EASTON (soprano)
FLORENCE EASTON was born in Yorkshire, played in public as a pianist at eight years old, decided at fourteen to become a singer, and duly made her début at Covent Garden Opera House Xas Cho-Cho-San in Madam Butterfly. Since then she has sung in that opera over three hundred times, and altogether has appeared in eighty-eight operatic rôles in British, German, American and most other great opera houses. Caruso, whose own repertory was pretty considerable, said of Florence Easton. ' Her head is a music box. She lifts the lid, takes out one record and puts in another. That is the only way any singer could remember so many operas '.

: Pillars of the English Church' Scribes-4

RICHARD CHURCH
By the Rev. Canon A. C. DEANE, M.A.
LOYALTY played a big part in the natures and sacrifices of these ' Pillars of the Church '. We have had an instance of loyalty to a king and another of loyalty to conscience. Perhaps loyalty both to conscience and to a friend was the governing influence in the life of Richard William Church.
In 1839 he was a young man with the world at his feet. He had taken First Class honours at Oxford; he had been elected Fellow of Oriel; he was appointed tutor and ordained. But two years later, out of friendship for another brilliant graduate and his own sympathy with a movement, Church threw up his means of livelihood and the rich promise of his career. For the Oxford Movement had set England smouldering, and Newman's ' Tract Ninety ' turned the smoke into flames, and Church, his friend, acting as proctor, vetoed its condemnation. Seven years went by and Church was an obscure country parson.
When he was over fifty he refused a canonry at Worcester ; when he was nearly sixty he reluctantly accepted the Deanery of St. Paul's. He will always be remembered for these two things : he was one of the few churchmen to keep his head over the controversy aroused by Darwin's ' Origin of Species ', and Cardinal Newman always went to see him on his occasional visits to London in his last years. For, through all the divisions and storms of life, they remained old friends.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
