: THE BBC WELSH ORCHESTRA

Leader, Frank Thomas
Conducted by Mansel Thomas
Ifor Hughes (bass)
Mendelssohn's Overture ' The Hebrides otherwise known as ' Fingal's Cave ', was inspired by a visit paid by the composer to Scotland in 1829. This very beautiful work has well been described as a seascape and it certainly suggests the surge of the sea in all its power and ruggedness. As a piece of musical construction it is perfect in form and the orchestration shows the hand of a delicate and masterly colourist.

: THE TORQUAY MUNICIPAL ORCHESTRA

Leader, Harold F. Petts
Conductor, Ernest W. Goss
John McKenna (tenor) from the Pavilion, Torquay
Saint-Saens's first opera. The Yelloiv Princess, was written in 1872, in a Paris scarcely recovered from the cruel- consequences of war. The story centres round a princess painted on a Japanese fan and a scientist to whom the princess seems to come to life in his dreams. The music is said to be too cold in feeling for the somewhat exotic libretto, but the overture has survived as an effective and popular concert piece.

: THE LAST MONTHS OF OSCAR WILDE IN PARIS

J. Joseph-Renaud
J. Joseph-Renaud , the distinguished French playwright and novelist and President of the Société des Auteurs, has broadcast in English several times before. Listeners will remember his very amusing account of duelling in France and his broadcast play The Boomerang Bet. Monsieur Joseph-Renaud knew Oscar Wilde , and in his talk he will be drawing on his own memories of the tragic last days of that great writer and conversationalist.

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.
