: THE BBC MILITARY BAND

Conducted by William J. Matthews
Frank Titterton (tenor)
Lalo's most successful opera was not performed until he was sixty-five. As has so often happened in the history of music, recognition came to him only after long and patient striving and considerable hardship. The opera was an immediate success, and won the prize of the French Academy. Not only that, but it reached its hundredth performance almost within a year of its production.
The story is of a mythical kingdom of Ys, of love and of warfare between two neighbouring kings, and at the end the King's daughter, to save her father's realm, gives herself to the sea as a sacrifice. The patron saint of Ys rises from the waves to receive her, and the waters go back from the land that they had threatened to overwhelm.

: Short Story © 'RENDEZVOUS FOR MR. HOPKINS'

by R. C. Hutchinson read by the Author
' am travelling to Tennelhurst to die..... It would hardly do not to die..... You see, I cannot afford to live. I have spent all my savings on the fare, everything but a pound or two.....' This is what the frail Mr. Hopkins told a fellow-traveller on the voyage out. Whom the invalid met when he reached his destination, and how he died exactly as he wished, is the subject of the short story to be read this afternoon. It appeared in print in 1929 in The English Review.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by Laurance Turner
Conducted by Trevor Harvey
Mendelssohn's chamber music contains some of his best and most fascinating works, notably the Octet in F for strings which was composed at the age of sixteen. It has been said of the Octet that it is much more of a symphony scored for a string orchestra than true chamber music. Indeed, Mendelssohn appears to have anticipated this criticism, for he desired that the Octet should be played in symphonic style. The scherzo, the third movement of the Octet, was re-scored for orchestra by the composer himself for a concert of the Royal Philharmonic Society in London, which he conducted in 1829. According to the composer himself, the motto for the scherzo was the following stanza from Goethe's Faust:
Floating cloud and trailing mist
Bright'ning o'er us hover ;
Airs stir the brake, the rushes shake-
And all their pomp is over.

Oldham , who has just received a Doctorate from Oxford University, is the general leader of the Conference on Church, Community, and State, which has now finished ita fortnight's work at Oxford.

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.
