Overture, The Italian in Algiers Rossini
Except for the recent Covent Garden revival, The Italian in Algiers has long ago gone from the repertoire, but the Overture is still a popular item in concert programmes. It is, indeed, a characteristic example of Rossini's wonderful gift for sparkling melody. and his favourite device of the crescendo is used very effectively.
Weinberger's opera, Schwanda, the Bagpiper, when produced in Germany two or three years ago proved an enormous success. It came to Covent Garden the season before last and our audience were hardly less enthusiastic. Schtcanda is a first-rate entertainment : good tunes, colour, wit and humour are its outstanding characteristics. The suite consists of five of the best and most tuneful numbers.

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.
