Baritone: Harold Casey
Conductor: Edgar Morgan

: Jan Berenska and his Orchestra

Relayed from The Town Hall, Leamington Spa
The name of Francesco Ezechiele Kremgildo Cavaliere Suppe Demelli gives uncertain clues to this composer's nationality. He was of Belgian descent, but his family had lived for many years in Italy. Ultimately, he settled in Vienna and was thenceforth known as Franz von Suppe. Operettas and musical farces were his speciality. He turned out about a couple of hundred such works. Nowadays, we in this country know very few of his works, but some of his overtures are still very popular. That to Poet and Peasant has been arranged for over fifty different combinations of instruments. Jan Berenska is a well-known Midland violinist and conductor ; he gave a recital in Birmingham Town Hall at the age of fifteen, and had a celebrity concert tour with Peter Dawson. He frequently broadcasts in studio recitals and conducts the orchestra of fifteen players which is regularly relayed from the Pump Room, Leamington Spa. He plays the 'cello as well as the violin, and is a composer.

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.
