Oxford v. Harlequins at
Twickenham Cambridge v. Blackheath at Cambridge
Commentaries by Howard Marshall and H. B. T. Wakelam
Here is a trailer, so to speak, to the Oxford and Cambridge fixture to be played (and broadcast) on December 7. An Oxford man in Howard Mar shall is to comment on the form shown by Oxford against Harlequins and a Cambridge man in II. B. T. Wakelam is to do the same for Cambridge against Blackheath. Presumably, most members of the University fifteens turning out today will be in action on December 7.

Sullivan
Overture, The Mikado
Selection, H.M.S. Pinafore Overture, Cox and Box Selection, Princess Ida Overture , Patience
This programme gives a very fair idea of Sullivan's evolution as a composer of comic opera, from Cox and Box to The Emerald Isle. Cox and Box (1867), his first essay in this direction, sprang from a chance meeting with F. C. Burnand , the well-known Victorian humorist, who wanting to help some musical friends who ran an amateur theatrical company, asked him to collaborate-without a fee.
Sullivan's next collaboration with Burnand, The Contrabandista, was a failure. He found his ideal partner in Gilbert with Thespis (1871), but the first big Gilbert-and-Sullivan success was H.M.S. Pinafore (1878). Patience (1881), Princess Ida (1884). The Mikado (1885), and The Yeomen of the Guard (1888) all date from the hey-day of the partnership.
The Emerald Isle came when that wonderful partnership was over. The librettist was Basil Hood. Sullivan died in 1900, before the music was finished, and the score was completed by Edward German.

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.
