Harmonised by M. W. Balfe
THE WIRELESS SINGERS
Conductor, LESLIE WOODGATE
At the Pianoforte, EDWIN BENBOW
The harp that once thro' Tara's Halls Silent, Oh Moyle ! be the roar of thy water
We may roam thro' this world Oh, breathe not his name
The time I've lost in wooing The meeting of the waters Lcsbia hath a beaming eye She is far from the land
0 think not my spirits are always as light
The Minstrel Boy
Tis the last rose of summer
THERE STILL EXIST here and there copies of the early editions of 'Irish Melodies ', the poems by Thomas Moore , to airs which he borrowed from various earlier sources and changed to suit his own poetiy where necessary.
The series, published between 1807 and 1834, was one of the most popular collections of songs in the whole of musical history, and wherever music was made they were known throughout the length and breadth of the land.
Many of these were published later with new accompaniments by Michael William Balfe , himself an Irishman. Balfe was bom in Dublin in 1808 and lived until 1882. He wrote a number of operas, all of them successful in their day, but now mostly forgotten, with the exception of the most popular successful English opera ever written, The Bohemian Girl , produced in London in 1843.

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.

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
