: Book Talk

MAURICE HEALY
This is the first of the book talks that are to be given regularly once a fortnight during the autumn. The aim of the talks, each lasting fifteen or twenty minutes, is to induce listeners, by methods as varied and as catholic as possible, to read books and to help them to choose what books to read. Thus new books will not be reviewed except incidentally. But recent books, old books (some forgotten, some classic but unread), and cheap editions will be talked about by speakers drawn from as wide a circle as possible.

Conducted by ALFRED REYNOLDS
The present programme of ' Comic Opera ' consists of excetpts from three now rarely heard operas which when first produced were exceedingly popular. The first, The Emerald Isle, was begun by Sir Arthur Sullivan and finished by Sir Edward German. Before he died, Sullivan completed the first two numbers and noted down the melodies of ten other numbers, including the finale to Act 1. These were orchestrated and, excepting the choruses and concerted parts, harmonised by Sir Edward German , who also contributed nine original numbers.
Offenbach (1819-1880) was one of the leading composers of light opera during the nineteenth century, when it reached the peak of its vogue. This opera, The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein, which is concerned with a temperamental and headstrong lady who ' dotes on the military', was first produced in 1867. Later, this opera found its way to London and enjoyed considerable popularity. It was revived at the Savoy Theatre in -1897. The original English production of Messager's Veronique was given at the Apollo Theatre in 1904. The conductor, Arthur Wood , tells us that it was the first wave of the foreign invasion, and the success of Veronique led to the production of The Little Michus in the following year, and later to that influx of Viennese operettas which began with The Merry Widow and still continues in a number of modern productions.

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.
