: THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA

(Leader, MONTAGUE BREARLEY)
Conductor, STANFORD ROBINSON
IN SPITE OF its name, A Children's Overture is a full-sized orchestral Overture, in every way dignified and important music, although its themes are all favourite nursery rhymes, and though the music is throughout in the brightest and gayest of spirits. Although it is as a song-writer that
Roger Quilter is best known to us, particularly by his melodious settings of many Shakespeare songs, he has more than once made it clear that he is no less a master of his craft when dealing with the orchestra. The same qualities of fresh, natural melody can be heard throughout this lighthearted Overture as in his songs. The old nursery rhymes on which it is built up are : ' Boys and Girls, come out to play ' ; 'Upon Paul's steeple stands a tree ' ; 'Dame, get up and bake your pies ' ; ' I saw three ships come sailing by ' ; ' Sing a song of sixpence ' ; ' There was a ladv loved a swine ' ; ' Over the hills and far away ' ; ' The frog and the crown ' ; ' A frog he would a-wooing go ' ; * Baa, baa, black sheep ' ; ' Here we go round the mulberry bush ' ;'Oranges and Lemons '.
VICTOR HERBERT , born in 1859, was a grandson of the Irishman Samuel Lover, who wrote ' Handy Andy '. He was for some years a leading violoncello player. He wrote neaily forty stage works, most of them light operas.

: THE OXFORD UNIVERSITY DRAMATIC SOCIETY

The Tragicall Historie of Doctor Faustus
By
CHRISTOPHER MARLOWE
Cast in order of their speaking :
The Seven Deadly Sins :-
Music arranged by MARK LUBBOCK
Production by GYLES ISHAM and BARBARA BURNHAM
CHRISTOPHER MARI OWE'S pageant play has been presented in every century since Edward Alleyn appeared in the name part in a surplis, with a crosse upon his breast at the Rose Theatre
I in 1594. Dr. Boas, the accepted English authority on Dr. Faustus, has shown how it was travestied in the eighteenth century and neglected in the nineteenth until almost its close, except in Gounod's operatic version and the spectacular adaptation hy W. G. Wills , produced at the Lyceum Theatre in December, 1885, with Henry Irving as Mephistopheles.
In 1896, however, the Elizabethan
Stage Society, under the direction of William Poe !, revived it in St. George's Hall on a stage after the mode! of the old Fortune Playhouse, and with a prologue written by Swinburne and spoken by Edmund Gosse. William Poel , who has devoted his life to the interpretation of Shakespearean and Elizabethan drama, toured it in 1904, and presented scenes from it at the Haymarket Theatre in 1925, on the occasion of the Marlowe Memorial Fund.
In 1929 the Norwich Players, under the direction of Nugent Monck , gave it at the Maddermarket Theatre and also at the Festival of Music and Drama in Canterbury Cathedral in the same year.
Tonight's production is to be the same as that given by the O.U.D.S. at the Town Hall, Oxford, in February this year. P. B. P. Glenville will again" play Mephistopheles, and R. F. Felton , President of the Society, Dr. Faustus. Gyles Isham , who produced at Oxford, is to collaborate with Barbara Burnham in producing this broadcast.

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.
