Dickens's story of ' The Cricket on the Hearth ' has been the subject of at least two operas, one by Goldmark and the other by Sir Alexander Mackenzie. The latter opera was completed in 1902. but though it has been several times performed at the Royal Academy of Music, at which Mackenzie was then Principal, it has not yet been publicly performed. Mackenzie has confessed that his idea of writing this opera was to check an unfortunate tendency of his students to take it for granted that opera must be tragic, melancholy, and lurid. By taking Dickens's simple story as his text, he at any rate proved that the lighter emotions can be equally well set to music. This is incidental music to a charming fairy play of Strindberg, the Scandinavian dramatist, who was not as a rule given to charm. In this case, however, he got his material from the folk ballads of his country and not from his own somewhat gloomy conception of life. Sibelius has played up to the spirit of the story, and his music is full of grace and delicacy. The whole suite consists of seven pieces, only four of which are being played here.

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.
