PONCHIELLI was a celebrated Italian composer of opera, who was born in 1834 and died in 1886. He studied at the Milan Conservatoire from 1843 to 1854, and two years later produced his first opera, I pramessi Sposi, at Cremona. In 1872, having made a success in the provinces, he was given the opportunity to produce I pramessi Sposi at Milan, which immediatelv made his fame. Ponchielli's two biggest successes were Gioconda, produced at La Scala in 1876, and Il Figlinol Prodigo , which was also produced at La Scala in 1880.

ELGAR's six ' Pomp and Circumstance ' Marches are prefaced with some lines from a poem, ' The March of Glory ', by the late Lord de Tabley, which opens:
' Like a proud music that draws men to die
Madly upon the spears in martial ecstasy.
A measure that set heaven in all their veins
And iron in their hands '.
Ernest Newman tells us that ' Eigar's idea was to treat the soldiers' march symphonically-to blend the practical and the artistic in one by making the March in every way adapted for marching purposes, while not sacrificing any of the qualities required for performance in the concert room.'

: An Organ Recital

St. Mark's, North Audley Street
KING GEORGE I was very fond of masquerades on the Thames, which, as a popular amusement of those days, were usually organised on a subscription basis. On one occasion he expressed a wish that a concert on the Thames might be planned on similar lines. Baron Kilmanseck, Master of the King's Horse, agreed to put up the money and Handel was commissioned to write the music. The concert was a great success, the river was crowded with barges, and afterwards there was a grand supper at Lord Ranelagh's house at Chelsea. George I was so pleased with the music that he commanded it to be repeated after the supper.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
