Interlude
2.5 Stories from World History
' Our Modern World'
A dramatic interlude written for broadcasting by HUGH Ross WILLIAMSON
' It is very wonderful indeed this world of yours. You have light without fire ; yotf send your voices all over the air ; you make music with the point of a needle.' These are only some of the things that Sir John Dixon , transported into this century from Elizabethan times, thinks wonderful in our modern world that we are so apt to take for granted. You will hear how he was under the impression that he was walking in Marylebone fields and found himself in Broadcasting House. Broadcasting, lifts, telephones, electric light-they amaze him. He is taken for a drive round London. Motor-cars bewilder him, the noise of the streets deafens him, he thinks the cinema the strangest invention of all.

Listeners will remember that
M. Emile Stephan opened this series in September last year and also later gave a delightful talk on the spirit of Christmas in France. Today he is to come to the microphone with M. Felix de Grand'Combe and they will go over the ground that has been covered. The object was not to teach French but to awaken interest in France. M. de Grand'-Combe occupies the Chair of French at Bristol University and is the author of a number of books, among them his amusing ' Tu Viens en Angleterre '.

: 'TRISTAN UND ISOLDE'

Act 3 of Wagner's Opera from the Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
The action takes place on Tristan's ship during a voyage from Ireland, in Cornwall, and in Brittany
Scene, The Courtyard of Tristan's
Castle, Brittany
Cast
Conductor,
Sir THOMAS BEECHAM , Bart.
Stage Director, Charles Moor
The curtain rises upon the desolate ground before Tristan's castle. Tristan lies on a couch dying from the wound inflicted by Melot's sword. While Kurvenal is tending him, a shepherd, who is watching for the arrival of Isolde's ship, is heard piping a plaintive tune. Tristan opens his eyes and murmurs: ' The old refrain; why does it waken me? Where am I?'
Tristan's thoughts turn to Isolde, and Kurvenal tries to comfort his anguish by telling him that Isolde is expected at any moment and it may be possible for her to heal his wound. Tristan imagines that he can see Isolde's ship, but the shepherd's doleful pipe tells him that he is mistaken. Tristan becomes delirious and finally sinks back exhausted.
At last Isolde's ship arrives, and the shepherd pipes a happy tune. Tristan tears the bandage from his wound and staggers to his feet to embrace Isolde, who gently pushes him back on his couch. The Love-glance motive is heard and as it works up to a climax Tristan dies in Isolde's arms.
In the meantime, King Mark and his followers disembark from their ship and Tristan's men, thinking they have come to take Isolde, start a fight. Kurvenal avenges Tristan by killing Melot, but is himself mortally wounded. The Love-death motive is now heard very softly on the orchestra, and it is gradually built up to an ecstatic climax. Isolde gazes at Tristan until, carried away with rapture, she falls on his body and dies.

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.
