: THE BBC NORTHERN IRELAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Philip Whiteway
Conductor, Walton O'Donnell
Few musicians have had so adventurous a life as William Vincent Wallace, composer of Maritana. His father was a military bandmaster, and the young Wallace was born in Waterford, Ireland, in 1812. Much of his early manhood was spent in Australia, farming and fiddle-playing, and later in many parts of the world. In 1845, however, he was again in London, and someone seems to have suggested to him that he should compose an opera. Maritana was the result; it appeared near the end of 1845 and was an immediate and assured success. In 1860 his opera Lurline was produced at Covent Garden.

Smetana, the father of Czech music, wrote only four chamber works: two string quartets, the Piano Trio in G minor, and a Sonatina for violin and piano. The composer dedicated his G minor Trio, which was written in 1885, ' in memory of our eldest child, Frederica, whose rare musical talent gave us such delight ; too early snatched from us by death at the age of four-and-a-half years'.

: ' A DILL PICKLE '

A short story by Katherine Mansfield , read by Molly Cullen
When she died in 1923 at the early age of thirty-five, Katherine Mansfield left a niche in English letters which it seems likely will never be filled. To the art of the short story she brought the peculiar genius of one who, in the words of her husband, J. Middleton Murry , ' seemed to adjust herself to life as a flower adjusts itself to the earth and to the sun '. Though by no means a cynic at heart Katherine Mansfield might be said to have done for English letters what Guy de Maupassant did for the literature of his country. There was no shade of human feeling, none of the tragicomic aspects of human relationship, which seemed to pass her by. There is no doubt that ' A Dill Pickle' in its subtly poignant analysis of a simple human situation is an example of this author at her best.

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.
