(Section E)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by B. Walton O'Donnell
Stanley Pope (baritone)
The ' Fidelio ' Overture is the fourth and last composed by Beethoven for his one opera. He wrote it on the occasion of a revival of the opera in 1814. He had the idea of revising the whole work, but in the main contented himself with writing this new overture. As a matter of fact, it was not ready for the revival, and another overture was played instead. Nowadays, however, at performances of Fidelio the Fidelio Overture is played as a prelude to the opera, while the more popular overture, Leonora No. 3, is played later between the acts.
Serge Prokofiev is considered one of the leading contemporary composers of Russia and in his numerous works such as the opera, The Love for Three Oranges, he has shown himself to be a master technician and a composer of great individuality. His ' Classical Symphony ', however, is not really representative of his style. It was composed in the spirit of a jeu d'esprit that, as its title would suggest, both in form and idiom harks back to the time of Haydn and Mozart. The music is clear-cut, full of straightforward melodies and tunes,, and provides a most attractive glimpse of the eighteenth century through modern eyes.

: RADIO REVIEW

A Parade of Radio Personalities
The BBC Variety Orchestra conducted by Charles Shadwell
Compere, Bryan Michie
Here is a variety of Variety, altogether new and unexpected. Who, for instance, would dream of finding the BBC's own-gardener in a Variety programme? Yet here he is: C. H. Middleton will have a chat for the first time with Bryan Michie in St. George's Hall and on the air.
It is an intimate, personal programme. Those who have made their names through radio, whether yesterday or when broadcasting was young, will come to the microphone and say something about themselves. Michie wants to introduce a very few of the many people who have become famous through broadcasting.
For twenty-four hours, reply-paid telegrams searched for Gypsy Petulengro, and at last found him. Henry Hall at the piano is another certainty, as is Jeanne de Casalis , who created Mrs. Feather; then Hughie Greene will appear without his gang. There will be one or more famous radio comedians, and a radio personality in Charles Shadwell. For the rest, let it be a surprise as to who will broadcast in ' Radio Review '.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
