: A Concert Version of the Comic Opera 'Tantivy Towers'

Libretto by A. P. Herbert
Music by Thomas F. Dunhill
Cast :
THE WIRELESS CHORUS
THE B.B.C. LIGHT ORCHESTRA
Conducted by Thomas F. Dunhill
Listeners have heard enough of Dunhill's music ere now - orchestral, chamber music, shorter pieces and songs-to realize how wholesome it is; fresh and bracing, often with a real English flavour to it, melodious and virile, the kind of music, in short, which leaves its hearers well content to believe in the essential goodness and beauty of life. He is equally at home in the learned and serious aspects of his art and in its moods of mirth and relaxation, one who has done a great deal of hard work in many different directions. A brilliant student of the Royal College, he afterwards became a professor there : ho has been Music Master at Eton, too. His interest in youthful aspirants is shown by many simple and musicianly contributions to young people's music, among them a series of masterly arrangements of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas for ten fingers of modest skill on the pianoforte. He is the author of a standard book on chamber music, and has helped his countrymen in other, no less practical, ways. For years he gave series of chamber concerts at which the work of the younger English composers was given chances it could not otherwise have had. He knows the Near East well, especially the music of Serbia, and some years ago gave an all-British concert in Belgrade.
In this merry operetta his music is on the same high artistic level as the text to which it is so happily mated; higher praise could not easily be offered to it.

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.
