: ' DOMESTIC DRAMA'

' Living Dangerously'
Kevin FitzGerald
In his previous talks in this amusing series Kevin FitzGerald has described the adventures of himself and his family in various homes, and, more than once, the always fearsome adventure of looking for a new home. Time passes ; they have been married eight years and have now settled down. They are quiet people, he insists, who like spending their time at home because that is where most of their interests are.
In mending the electric iron lies a sense of power ; the fat stock prices are purest poetry because he has made his own wireless set. He finds enjoyment in the daily arrival of the post, humour in the blandishments of the man who calls to get some business. He listens to the stirring tales of his guests, but has no wish to live dangerously. He wants the slithering noise in the early morning to be caused by a mouse, the loud knock at the door to be a policeman suggesting the closing of a window and not a gangster. And who shall blame him ?

: A RECITAL

Frederick Sharp (baritone) Thelma Reiss (violoncello)
By technique and personality and a certain intensive beauty in her playing, Thelma Reiss has won her way into the front rank of our younger cellists. Our own critics have acclaimed her ; France, Holland, Norway, and Spain, have all recognised her outstanding gifts. She was something of a child prodigy, for at the age of seven she was able to play the Goltermann Concerto in A minor, and in her early 'teens won an open scholarship to the Royal College of Music, where she studied under Ivor James. About six years later Miss Reiss made her debut at the Wigmore Hall, and soon afterwards she appeared as soloist in the Elgar 'Cello Concerto at Queen's Hall under Sir Henry Wood. Since that time she has played with most of the leading orchestras in Britain and has played a great deal of chamber music with various eminent pianists, including Harriet Cohen and John Ireland.
Miss Reiss's partner in this recital is the young baritone Frederick Sharp , who studied at the Royal College of Music where he received five awards and won an open scholarship. During the last two years he has broadcast on several occasions.

: Salzburg Festival Act 2 of Mozart's Opera 'THE MAGIC FLUTE'

from the Festspielhaus, Salzburg
The Vienna Philharmonic
Orchestra
Conductor, ARTURO TOSCANINI
Papageno
The story of The Magic Flute is full of incident and is chiefly concerned with the various adventures of the young prince Tamino, who is trying to win the beautiful Pamina, daughter of the malignant Queen of the Night. Papageno, a quaint, practical-minded bird-catcher, is also in search of a wife.
Act 2 opens with a solemn ceremony in the Temple of Trials, where Tamino and Papageno are brought to undergo such trials as will prove them worthy of happiness. Sarastro, the chief priest, and the other priests accept Tamino and Papageno for initiation. Papageno is told that a charming little bird-woman, Papagena, is intended for him. After many trials, including a test of silence which the loquacious bird-catcher finds tiresome, Tamino leads Pamina safely through fire and water by the enchantment of a magic flute. At last all ends happily, the two pairs of lovers being greeted with general acclamation.

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.
