: A RECITAL

by Maggie Teyte (soprano)
Maggie Teyte was born at Wolverhampton. When only thirteen her father sent her to study the piano at the Royal College of Music. Then she was sent to study singing in Paris under Jean de Reszke. Within two years and three months she made her debut at a Sunday night concert at Monte Carlo with Paderewski. That was in 1907, and soon after she made her first appearance in opera-also at Monte Carlo, as Zerlina in Don Juan. She returned to Paris and was engaged by the Opera-Comique. Three years later she made her debut in London with the Beecham Opera Company, appearing first at His Majesty's, then at Covent Garden.
The following year Maggie Teyte made her debut in America at the Metropolitan Opera House, Philadelphia, and sang in opera there until 1913. Every year, from 1914 until 1918, she did concert tours in the States. Since then she has toured all over the world.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
