: THEBBC MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by REGINALD BURSTON
It was the appearance of the first part of Hiawatha, in 1898, which spread
Coleridge-Taylor's fame all over the English-speaking world, and as it was the composer's first really important success, so it has remained the most popular of all his music. In its vivid and yet simple rhythm, its fresh and natural melody, and in the wan-nth of its orchestral treatment, the music is obviously ideally mated with Long-fellow's poem. The ' Wedding Feast' was first given alone, the second part, ' The Death of Minnehaha ', appearing a year later at a North Staffordshire Festival. ' Hiawatha's Departure ', which completes the trilogy, was first given by the Roya! Choral Society in London in the spring of 1900.

Overture, Richard III
In 1888, when Sir Edward German was twenty-six, he was engaged as Musical Director at the old Globe Theatre, which was then under the management of Richard Mansfield , a popular Shakespearean actor of those days. German was commissioned to write the incidental music to a new production of Richard III. The success of this music reached the ears of Henry Irving at the Lyceum Theatre, who when he wanted music for his gorgeous production of Henry VIII in 1892, looked no further than the young composer who had done so well with Richard III. From that moment German never looked back.

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.
