: ' The Boat Train' ' To cross the Jordan ' THE COUNTESS OF LIMERICK

FROM THE TIME the Countess of Limerick saw Lowell Thomas 's film of Arabia, she was filled with a desire to visit Petra. Her opportunity occurred when she was visiting Palestine. The journey was not without adventure. It was no easy matter to cross the Jordan, for it was then in flood. In her ride across the desert she encountered a band of nomad Arabs and spent a night in the mosque of a deserted Bedouin village. She was lavishly entertained in the camp of the Emir Abdulla.
As she herself says : ' But what will remain a never to be forgotten memory is the approach to Petra and the first view of the wonderful Khazna Fur'un, once the treasure house of Pharaoh. The sun striking full on the flame-coloured face of the temple carved out of the solid rock, with its delicate veining of purple, orange and green ; the rock dwellings honeycombed in the pink sandstone hills, all contribute to make Petra what might well be described as the eighth wonder of the world.'

ROBERT LUCAS PEARSALL (the ' de ' was a middle-aged affectation) came of an old west country family, was trained for the bar and, like many another budding barrister, abandoned law for music, in 1825 at the age of thirty. Much of his life was spent on the continent, in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (where he died in 1856), but it was English singing that attracted him to the madrigal, in the composition of which he came to excel. His other works are mainly for the Roman Catholic and Anglican churches.
CIRO PINSUTI (1829-1888) came to England from Siena at the age of eleven, studied in London for five years, returned to Bologna as a private pupil of Rossini, took a degree and returned to England to teach singing at the R.A.M., and to compose songs, part songs, and a great number of charming pieces of that kind. Many of them survive and are great favourites with choral societies.
RICHARD JOHN SAMUEL STEVENS (1757-1837) was a celebrated composer of glees (particularly to the words of Shakespeare) in his day, was a great name at the Catch Club, became Organist of the Temple Church, of the Charter House, and attained to the Gresham Musical Professorship, a very distinguished chair of music which has been occupied by successive eminent musicians from Dr. John Bull in 1596 to Sir Walford Davies in our own day.

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.
