PHILIP BERTRAM (Baritone)
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C)
(Led by F. WEIST HILL)
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON

IN 1888, when German was twenty-six, he was engaged as Musical Director at the old Globe Theatre, which was then under the management of Richard Mansfield, a popular Shakespearean actor of those days. German was commissioned to write the incidental music to a new production of Richard III. The success of this music reached the ears of Henry Irving at the Lyceum Theatre, who when he wanted music for his gorgeous production of Henry VIII in 1892, looked no further than the young composer who had done so well with Richard III. From that moment German never looked back.
PAUL LACOME - not to be confused with Paul Lacombe, who was a pianist much more highbrow, and p, year older-was born in 1838 and died in 1920. He composed a great deal, mostly songs -about two hundred-and light operas. Jeanne, Jeannette, et Jeanneton, which dates from 1876 and is still sometimes revived, was the most popular of them.
AT the age of twenty-four, Schubert was an experienced writer of operas, none of which had so far been performed. He was, however, still bent on writing them, and one summer in the country he started Alfonso and Estrella. The libretto, in three acts, is a hotchpotch of battles, love, conspiracy, hunting, peasant life, and other operatic conventions of those days. It had no better fortune than any of its predecessors. It was, however, ultimately performed, under Liszt, twenty-six years after Schubert's death, and again, with a re-written libretto and many cuts, in 1881, at Carlsruhe, and there it is said to have been successful.

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.
