THE YEOMEN OF THE GUARD was the Gilbert and Sullivan opera which followed
Ruddigore; it made its appearance in October, 1888, as the eleventh in the long series of their comic operas. Both author and composer regarded it as the best work of the whole series, and it certainly stands out as distinct from the others in more than one way. The libretto deserts for once the typical whimsical humour for which wo have had to ndd to the language the word ' Gilbertian,' and the music is also on rather more serious lines, lyrically und dramatically. In its own way the opera has always made as strong. an appeal as the more light-hearted onos, and, even to those who have not been lucky enough to hear it in its stage form, much of the tuneful music is familiar in the form of selections.

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.
