Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Boughton's The Queen of Cornwall is based on Thomas Hardy 's play of the same name. The play is a version of the Tristram legend, and Hardy and Boughton have been more faithful to tradition than Wagner was. The overture is a prelude rather than an epitome of the action and music of the drama which follows, although the first subject is the theme of one of Tristram's love songs: ' When I set out for Lyonesse' The second subject is taken from the music associated in the opera with the Queen, and among the other motives is one taken from King Mark's drinking song.

: GREAT OCCASIONS IN PARLIAMENT

' The War Scare with France '
Palmerston and Bright on July 23, 1860
Read by Felix Aylmer
This evening's great parliamentary occasion took place during a foreign affairs debate in the House of Commons at a time when British public opinion was gravely suspicious of the Emperor Napoleon III of France. This monarch had annexed
Nice and Savoy, torn up the provisions of the Vienna settlement of 1815, heavily fortified Cherbourg and increased the naval works there.
Palmerston feared that Belgium might soon be annexed and England attacked. As a result a volunteer movement swept the country, rallying to the various public services. Palmerston drew the attention of the House to the position as he saw it, declared that steam had bridged the Channel, and urged fortification of Britain's shores.
Bright, for his part, declared that
Britain's strength remained in her Navy and that sweet reasonableness with Napoleon was the only answer.
Felix Aylmer 's own grandfather took an active part in the volunteer movement of 1860.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
