: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section C)
Led by MARIE WILSON
Conducted by AYLMER BUESST
VICTORIA HOPPER (soprano) Victoria Hopper was born in Vancouver in 1909, and came to England at the age of fourteen. She went to school in Newcastle, where she studied singing until she was twenty. Then, determined to take up a musical career, she came to London and joined the Webber-Douglas School in South Kensington. There she studied music, dancing and languages, for her great ambition was to become an opera singer. At the end of the course, however, she was asked to play in the school's production of J. J. Bernard's drama, Martine, at which Sydney Carroll was present. Mr. Carroll was so impressed that he produced Martine at the Ambassadors, and gave Miss Hopper the leading part. Her next important engagement was as Tessa in Basil Dean's film version of The Constant Nymph. After playing in Humperdinck's fairy opera, Hansel and Gretd, at the Cambridge Theatre In 1933, Miss Hopper was chosen for a big part in Tchekov's Three Sisters at Drury Lane. It was while that show was running that she and Basil Dean were married. Later, Miss Hopper took the leading part in Mr. Dean's film of Lorna Doone, and she has just finished making another film entitled Whom the Gods Love, based on the life of Mozart, in which she plays the part of Mozart's wife, Constanze.

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.
