: Composer of the Week: Sullivan

5: Eyot Island, Weybridge. Donald Macleod visits Richard D'Oyly Carte's private island on the River Thames west of London - the area which was often Sullivan's summer retreat in the last decade of his life. At
Weybridge Sullivan composed much of the music for The Gondoliers, Utopia Ltd and The Grand Duke, as well as for other light operas like The Emerald Isle; and, in 1890, his long-awaited first grand opera, Ivanhoe. Today's programme also features highlights from Sullivan's incidental music for The Merchant of Venice and his ballet
Victoria and Merrie England, and ends with his most (in)famous song, The Lost Chord.

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.
