Part I
Overture, Ivan the Terrible
Rimsky-Korsakov
Ivan the Terrible (or The Maid of Pskov, to give it its proper title) was Rimsky-
Korsakov's first opera, written in 1869-70, But the composer was so dissatisfied with his work that he completely re-wrote and re-orchestrated it twice. The present version, the third, dates from the early eighteen-nineties.
The opera is based on an incident of Russian history. Ivan the Terrible is enraged with the. Free City of Pskov and the city fathers have meekly submitted. But the younger and more patriotic citizens have rebelled under the leadership of Michael Tucha , the lover of Olga, the so-called Maid of Pskov. Olga is actually the daughter of the cruel Tsar, though she does not know it-nor does the Tsar discover her identity till near the end (when she is accidentally killed).
.In the overture, the slow introduction characterises the terrible, relentless Tsar; the passionate section that follows, the fiery spirit of the rebels ; while the lovely broad melody a little later is associated with the Maid of Pskov.
In the powerful monologue, one of the outstanding passages in Mussorgsky's masterpiece, Boris — the Russian Richard Crook back-broods over the evil destiny that justly dogs him. He has done his best for his people, for he is not really an evil man ; but the shadow of the murder that opened his way to the throne blights all his actions. Symphony No. 5, in E minor

: 'Lope de Vega'

E. ALLISON PEERS
(Gilman Professor of Hispanic Studies at Liverpool University)
The end of the sixteenth century is such a brilliant period in our history that we may perhaps be pardoned for throwing out our chests, smiling glowing smiles at the recollection of 'the Elizabethan age', and forgetting the mere foreigners. As for the Spaniards in particular, they were merely the fellows we always beat. Yet, as it happens, that very period was also Spain's golden age of art and literature, the age of Cervantes, Calderon, and Victoria, of El Greco , Velazquez, and Murillo-the age of Lope de Vega.
To many English people, Lope de
Vega is merely a name. Everybody knows something about ' Don Quixote ' ; everyone who has been to the National Gallery must have seen a Velazquez; most musicians know something of Victoria's music. But Lope, greatest of Spanish dramatists, is known in England to few but Spanish scholars. Professor Peers's talk should arouse more general interest in the great writer whose birth tercentenary is being celebrated today ; an author so prolific that he turned out 1,500 plays, of which 400 are still extant-he boasted that more than a hundred of them had been written in twenty-four hours each ; incidentally, a man of action who in his youth sailed against us in the Invincible Armada.

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.
