When to the Temple Mary went, and brought the Holy Child,
Him did the aged Simeon see, as it had been revealed.
He took up Jesus in his arms and, blessing
God, he said :
In peace, I now depart, my Saviour having seen.
The Hope of Israel, the Light of men. Help now thy servants, gracious Lord, that we may ever be
As once the faithful Simeon was, rejoicing but in Thee;
And when we must from earth departure take.
May gently fall asleep, and with Thee wake.

: THE BBC SYMPHONY CONCERTS

Season 1938-9
Eleventh Concert from Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lessens, Messrs. Chappetl and Co. Ltd.)
May Blyth (soprano)
Paul Beard (violin)
The BBC Symphony Orchestra
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor,
SIR ADRIAN BOULT
MAY BLYTH
Listeners will remember that a complete concert version of Alban Berg 's opera Wozzeck was performed at Queen's Hall at a BBC Symphony Concert in 1934. The libretto compresses into fifteen scenes the play of the same name by Georg Biichner , who died in 1831. Although belonging to the early romantic period of literature, it is more in keeping with the modern spirit of stark realism.
The story runs roughly as follows: Wozzeck himself, a humble soldier, is tormented constantly by the impossibility of adjusting his mental outlook to his own surroundings, and in the end kills his sweetheart, Marie, not so much from jealousy of her apparent preference for the handsome drum major, as in a fit of neurotic madness, which leads him, too, to take his own life.
The first of the three extracts to be heard this evening begins at the close of the second scene. The second extract comes from the beginning of Act 3. It is a theme with seven variations and a fugue. The third extract comes at the end of the opera.
Versatile Artist
May Blyth, who gave the first concert performance in England of these Fragments, and also took part in the complete concert version, won the Sainton Dolby Scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music in 1916. She was one of the first members of the British National Opera Company, for which she sang several of the principal Wagnerian roles, and she has also appeared on many occasions with the Covent Garden Opera Company.
Miss Blyth's association with the BBC goes back to the summer of 1923, when she made her microphone debut. Her gifts, however, are not restricted to opera, for she is an equally fine singer of German lieder and English song. Her husband, by the way, is Aylmer Buesst , the well-known conductor.

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.
