Overture, King Enzio
During the early thirties of the nineteenth century Wagner was deeply immersed in the study of Beethoven's music, especially in the Ninth Symphony, and he himself admits that his overture ' King Enzio' was inspired by Beethoven. 'King Enzio' was written in 1832 and was on several occasions performed by Wagner as an introduction to Raupach's play King Enzio.

: WORLD THEATRE, No. 3

' JUNO AND THE PAYCOCK' by Sean O'Casey
Adapted for broadcasting by Patrick Riddell and produced by Peter Creswell
Cast
Neighbours, furniture removers, two
Irregulars, etc.
The action of the play takes place throughout in the living-room of the tenement home of the Boyle family, in Dublin, in the year 1922
(Northern Ireland Programme)
'Juno and the Paycock' was broadcast in the National programme last night
The whole action of Juno and the Paycock is laid in a Dublin tenement house, and listeners may be assured that Sean O'Casey knows what he is talking about when he portrays these surroundings and draws such characters as the Boyles, Jerry Devine , and Joxer Daly. He was born and brought up in just such a house as this He never went to school, and did not learn to read till he was twelve.
After a period as a newspaper boy, he became a general labourer, working at the docks and on the railway, as a hod-carrier and as a stone-breaker. He began to write plays in his spare time. It is said that eight of them were rejected before The Shadow of a Gunman was staged at the Abbey Theatre in April, 1923. This made his reputation at once. Juno and the Paycock, produced in May, 1924, was awarded the Hawthornden Prize in 1926.

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.
