: In Repertory

' It takes me an awful long time to commit music to memory ... and with songs, for example, I can never learn a strophic song to save my life.'
Despite this self-confessed. though no doubt exaggerated revelation, Robert Tear has one of the widest repertoires of any tenor, ranging from Handel to Berg and Tippett, taking in Victorian songs and ballads on the way.
In this programme he talks to Alan Blyth about roles and music in his repertory.
With illustrations on record from Hugh the Drorer, Lulu, The Knot Garden, Belshazzar and other works.
Producer GRAHAM SHEFFIELD

: Virgil's Eclogues

Nos 7 and 8 Read by Stephen Murray. Ian Cross , Jonathan Newth and Julia Hills
A singing match between Corydon and Thvrsis constitutes Eclogue 7: each song of Thyrsis echoes and counters a point made by Corydon in his preceding song. In the eighth Eclogue there are two monologues: the first is that of Damon, who sings as a disappointed lover, the second that of Alphesiboeus, who gives voice to the thoughts of a deserted girl who seeks charms to bring back her lover Daphnis.

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.
