Preciosa waj a Spanish play, adapted from the novel by Cervantes, and needed music of a Spanish type to make it effective. Weber was asked to write the incidental music, for, though he had never been in Spain, he was known to be expert in creating local colour. He had, for example, composed excellent music for Schiller's Turandot without having to go to China for his material.
Weber was all the more agreeable to accept the commission since, having finished Der Freischiitz, he was contemplating writing an opera on a Spanish subject, and had actually composed some of the numbers. For this purpose he had studied the Spanish idiom, so that the local colour was safe in his hands. He did, as a matter of fact, produce the colour of Spanish music very effectively into the Preciosa music, introducing a number of gypsy rhythms and Spanish National melodies. The complete music of the play consists of an overture and eight other numbers, mostly choruses.

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.
