: Light French Music THE MIDLAND STUDIO ORCHESTRA

Directed by FRANK CANTELL
IN 1858, nearly a hundred years after Gluck produced his famous opera on the mythological subject of Orpheus and Eurydice, Paris had the good fortune to be offered an audacious burlesque of the story, called Orpheus in the Undenuorld, by- Meilhac and Halevy, two of the wittiest French dramatists of that time, and Offenbach, certainly the gayest and most exhilarating composer in the Europe of his day. There is no question that Offenbach's treatment of it has, for popularity, left Gluck's panting heavily in the rear.
BIZET wrote only a small quantity of piano music, which is hardly representative of his genius. His best effort in this direction, however, was the collection of twelve picees for piano duet entitled ' Children's Games ', which are in the form of cameos after the style of Schumann's ' Scenes of Childhood '. Five of the best numbers were orchestrated by Bizet and called ' Little Suite for Orchestra'. Simple, melodious, fanciful, and charming sum up their characteristics".

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
