The idea of setting an operatic text to music selected from the works of one composer has often been carried out, but seldom with any great success. The music of Tchaikovsky, Chopin, and even Offenbach has been put to this purpose in operettas that had but a short life. Lilac Time, is, however, the exception. It is an ironic fact that of all the operatic texts set to Schubert's music, and he set many, the only one to succeed is the one he didn't set.

: Fred Hartley and his Novelty Quintet

with Brian Lawrence
Songs of the Old Plantation

Fred Hartley and his Novelty Quintet are one of the most popular ensembles on the air. The secret of their success is the artistic arrangements and perfect playing of tuneful music, from that of Brahms to the ballad of the day. The members of the Quintet are all capable of playing equally well either a string quartet or a fox-trot. Two of them play for leading symphony orchestras, two for a famous dance band, and one is a member of a well-known string quartet.

Fred Hartley himself began to study the violin at the age of four, the piano at six, and ten years later entered the Royal Academy of Music where he remained for five years. During that time he acted as the Academy's official accompanist and appeared as soloist in the concertos of Schumann, Grieg, and Tchaikovsky, under the batons of Sir Henry Wood and Sir Alexander Mackenzie. Hartley was once a member of Al Starita's Kit-Kat Band, and he also taught the piano at the Dundee School of Music, of which his father is the principal.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section *C)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by JOHN BARBIROLLI
Franck's Prelude to the second part of Redemption, a ' Poem Symphony ', or sacred Cantata, written in 1872 ex pounds the idea of man's redemption from the fruits of his selfishness and anger through the influence of Christian ideals and conduct. The Prelude is a blend of graceful melodic ideas, woven with all Franck's skill and dramatic declamation.
Widor succeeded César Franck as Professor of the Organ at the Paris Conservatoire, and worthily upheld the fine tradition of French organ music which began a new lease of life with Franck's advent.
But, although it is his organ music which is much better known in this country than the rest of his work, taking as it does a really important place in the organist's repertoire, there is a good deal of symphonic and even operatic music from his pen La
Korrigane was produced in Paris at the Opera on December i, 1880. It is a Ballet in two acts.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
