Overture, Prometheus
NORMAN ALLIN and Orchestra
IT is almost impossible to make head or tail of the story of Mozart's Magic Flute. Various interpretations have been put upon it, including that of symbolic freemasonry.
'O Isis and Osiris' is sung by Sarastro, who is the High Priest of Isis. Tamino, an Egyptian prince, has with him Papageno. a bird-catcher, who is the comic character of the opera. Tamino and Papageno are having a good deal of trouble in rescuing Pamina, daughter of the Queen of the Night. Sarastro, who seems friendly towards the prince, expresses in this recitative the pious hope that the prince will fulfil his purpose. In the aria which follows he declaims that his temple is a hallowed dwelling, from the fact that therein revenge and sorrow ceases, and the weary heart is no longer troubled. Were the whole plot to be given here, not much more sense could be gleaned from it than can from this brief note.

In questa tomba Creation's Hymn
THIS poem, 'In questa tomba,' by Carpani, appears to have been the subject of friendly rivalry between a number of musicians, all of whom set the poem to music. Beethoven's was the sixty-third and last, and, of course, the only one that has survived.
The poem is sombre. It is merely the wail of a woman who has been deceived in love apostrophizing a tomb where she would wish to be buried, left alone, and forgotten. It is difficult to conceive how any one of the sixty-three competitors could have been in the least moved by it.
THE words of ' Creation's Hymn ' are very difforent from the one above. They express quite simply the wonders of the sea, the earth, and the sky, the work of the Creator. The whole effect, simple though both words and music seem to be, is one of great majesty.

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.
