: THE OXFORD NEW THEATRE ORCHESTRA

Conductor,
WILLIAM BRIGHTWELL
It was the appearance of the first part of Hiawatha, in 1898, which spread Coleridge-Taylor's fame all over the English-speaking world, and as it was the composer's first really important success, so it has remained the most popular of all his music. In its vivid and yet simple rhythm, its fresh and natural melody, and in the warmth of its orchestral treatment, the music is obviously ideally mated with Long-fellow's poem. The ' Wedding Feast ' was first given alone, the second part, ' The Death of Minnehaha '. appearing a year later at a North Staffordshire Festival. ' Hiawatha's Departure ', which completes the trilogy, was first given by the Royal Choral Society in London in the spring of 1900.

Organist and Choirmaster,
H. 0. HODGSON
There have been frequent broadcasts from this noble fifteenth-century church in Nottingham. The present one is interesting because it is preceded by the bells ; these, with the exception of one, have been recently recast and rehung, and now constitute a particularly fine peal.
The Vicar of St. Mary's is
Bishop Neville Talbot , who has frequently broadcast, and the organist, Mr. Hodgson, has given recitals with choir.

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.
