: THE BELFAST WIRELESS ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Peter Montgomery
Clifton Helliwell (pianoforte) Pinafore was produced in 1878, and had a run of 700 consecutive nights in London. Besides that, it was produced in a pirated version at another theatre in London, and had a tremendous vogue throughout the country. In the United States its unauthorised performances broke all records of that kind, and a contemporary report tells us that' the spectacle was presented at every theatre and every concert of importance in the big cities, producing the same piece without the author and composer receiving a farthing for their work.' The matter became so serious that Gilbert and Sullivan together went to New York in 1879 to produce their own authentic version at the Fifth Avenue Theatre.

THE WIRELESS VOCAL OCTET
Conductor, LESLIE WOODGATE
This thoroughly native programme -—author, composers, artists are all British-is of a type that it would be hard to find in any country in Europe. Goethe in Germany, Victor Hugo in France, have been of the greatest service to the composers of their own countries, but no dramatic poet other than Shakespeare has offered such splendid opportunities and bequeathed such a wealth of glowing texts for musical setting, and it is safe to say that the songs of no other poet in any language have been so often set.
One or two of the songs in this programme are traditional settings-those of Arne and Stevens in particular -but for the most part, the music is modern or comparatively recent. The fact is that all the texts have been set to music over and over again, and every generation has had its favourites. So that this selection of composers who have put certain of the well-known songs to music is chosen not arbitrarily nor casually, but because every one of the settings has the merit that deserves its place in a numerous and distinguished company.

Born in Yorkshire, Miss Holtby was educated at Queen Margaret's, Scarborough, and at Oxford University, where in later years she returned as University Extension Lecturer on Modern History for the Extra Mural Delegacy. For several years Miss Holtby was a regular lecturer for the League of Nations Union, for which she travelled in Europe and Africa.

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.
