: LESLIE JAMES

at the Organ of the Rialto Cinema,
Coventry
In this afternoon's programme (which the popular organist of the Rialto Cinema, Coventry, is repeating at 6.20 this evening on the Midland wavelength) Leslie James is making a feature of ' Southern Sea Reverie ', representing Hawaiian music of his own composition, which he is to play in the traditional Hawaiian guitar manner. The effect he obtains is the result of very careful imitative study on his part, and can only be obtained, he says, on the Rialto organ.

: The London Philharmonic

Concert Society, Ltd., presents
'TRISTAN UND ISOLDE'
Act 3 of the opera by Wagner from the Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
Scene: The courtyard of Tristan's castle, Brittany
Cast in order of appearance
The London Philharmonic Orchestra
Leader, David McCallum
Conductor, Sir Thomas Beecham Chorus Master, Robert Ainsworth
Producer, Charles Moor
The wounded Tristan lies on a couch. Kurwenal (baritone) and the shepherd (tenor) are on the lookout for the ship that is to bring Isolde from Cornwall. Kurwenal hopes her presence will help Tristan's recovery.
Tristan awakes and passionately asks for Isolde. He gets more and more agitated, until in a delirious paroxysm he even curses his love. Suddenly the shepherd's melancholy air changes to a gay tune: Isolde's ship has been sighted. Tristan tears the bandage from his wound and rushes to Isolde. But she is too late. For with her name on his lips, Tristan sinks lifeless to the ground.
A tumult is heard from outside : a second ship bringing King Mark and Brangane has just arrived. Believing the king to be pursuing Isolde, Kurwenal and his men attack the new-comers, and though himself mortally wounded, kills Melot. Brangane explains to Isolde that she has told the King about the love potion and that he has come only to forgive the lovers. But Isolde pays no attention and sinks dying upon the body of her dead lover.
Act 2 was broadcast in the Regional programme this evening at 8.30

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.
