Leader, Frank Thomas
Conductor, IDRIS LEWIS
GLYN EVANS (baritone)
Medea in Cherubini's opera is presented as the spirit of evil and the full story ot her dread vengeance is powerfully depicted. The opera must have been a very difficult one to put on the stage with any resources which were available in Cherubini's day. At the end, after she has put her rival to cruel death, and murdered all her own children, she is driven off through the air in a chariot drawn by fire-breathing dragons, while earthquake and a rain of fire from the skies reduce palace and temple to crumbling ruin. The overture, stem and serious music though it is, is much more melodious than such a tale would lead one to look for; that, again, was demanded by custom.

: A Pianoforte Recital

Betty Humby won a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music at the age of eleven, which was a feat without precedent. Miss Humby studied first under Matthay and then under Schnabel in Germany. Her first broadcast was at the age of sixteen. She has played at numerous Prom concerts under Sir Henry Wood , and at concerts in the chief provincial musical centres under various famous conductors. Recently Miss Humby toured Scandinavia and the Netherlands, giving recitals and broadcasts with great success.

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.
