: THE BOYD NEEL STRING ORCHESTRA

Leader, Louis WILLOUGHBY
Conductor, BOYD NEEL
Handel's opera Faramondo was composed during the year 1737, completed on Christmas Eve and first produced on January 3 of the following year. In his life of the composer, Newman Flower tells us that : ' Faramondo was not a good opera. From Handel it was indifferent work. The libretto was futile, and the music at no point reached his accustomed height. His health still worried him, and his debtors plagued-'him yet more. Not that he would have offered these nuisances by way of excuse. When the public applauded the opera on its production, it is possible that the sight of its composer back in his old place inspired much of the sentiment, for the takings of the box-office failed to reflect this enthusiasm. The Press acclaimed the work. " Last night the new opera of Faramondo was performed at the King's Theatre to a splendid audience," declared one journal on January 4, " and met with general applause. It being the first time of Mr. Handel's appearance this season, he was honour'd with extraordinary and repeated signs of approbation." '

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.
