Two days after the first performance of Berlioz's ' Harold in Italy ' Symphony, the solo viola part of which was played by Paganini, Paganini sent the composer a banker's order for 20,000 francs as an act of ' homage '. This gift released Berlioz from financial worry and consequently he devoted the best part of 1839 to the composition of a symphony, based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. This dramatic symphony, scored 'for soloists, chorus and orchestra, is divided into seven sections, of which the scherzo is one of the most outstanding.
George Bizet wrote several operas before he made his great success with Carmen. Among the earlier of these was one entitled La Jolie Fille de Perth, founded on Sir Walter Scott 's novel ' The Fair Maid of Perth'. It was produced at Paris in December, 1867, but it was not very favourably received. Bizet, himself, was not particularly happy about it. He did not like the novel, but felt it was good material for operatic treatment. Such of the music that has survived is to be found in the ballet music, some of which was afterwards used in Carmen and has been considered part of that opera ever since.
The orchestral suite Scenes bohemiennes consists of four of the best numbers in the opera, which are full of fine melodies scored with delicate and brilliant effect.

' Tattenham Corner'
H. JONES
Legend dies hard. It is still said that the only jockey able to ride Diamond Jubilee, the horse who would walk a hundred yards on his hind legs, was the colt's stable lad. But Herbert Jones , though he was comparatively unknown, had actually ridden forty or fifty winners. Diamond Jubilee brought him fame. He rode him to victory in the Guineas and the Derby of 1900 for King Edward, who was then Prince of Wales.
He rode King Edward's third Derby winner, Minoru, in 1909, and the last horse of his to win a race-Witch of the Air, who won at Kempton Park a few hours before the King died. He also rode the first winner for King George V -a two-year-old called Pintadeau that won the Fitzwilliam Stakes at the Don-caster Spring meeting of 1911. Surely, no great jockey could more appropriately give a sports talk at this period between Jubilee and Derby than that incomparable horseman, H. Jones.

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.
