THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section E)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
The plays of Shakespeare, which by their nature call for incidental music, have always attracted composers, not only in England, but in Europe, as this programme tends to show.
Only one of these items is from an opera-Nicolai's Overture. The opera libretto in this case does not follow Shakespeare's text very closely, but the comedy spirit is given plenty of rein in the music.
Massenet's Suite is a series of studies unconnected either with opera or stage presentation.
The remainder of the items in the programme were in each case specially written for performance with stage productions. Sir Edward German 's Henry VIII music was written for a presentation of the play by Sir Henry Irving at the Lyceum Theatre in 1892. The incidental music included also the famous Henry VIII Dances , and this fortunate commission went far to make the name of the young composer.
Quilter's As You Like It music dates from 1922. His settings of the songs for the same production are continually sung, and are great favourites with singers.
Coleridge-Taylor's Othello music dates from 1911, when it was written for Sir Herbert Tree 's production of the play at His Majesty's Theatre.

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.
