: The BBC Midland Orchestra

Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Among Goldmark's compositions two of the best known are the overtures ' Sakuntala' and 'Penthesilea'. The latter is a concert overture based on Kleist's drama, which is roughly as follows:
During the siege of Troy, the Amazons, led by their Queen, Penthesilea, are allied to the Trojans against the Greeks. The mythical race of warrior women were allowed to be temporarily united to chosen heroes whom they first had to conquer in battle. Penthesilea seeks a personal encounter with Achilles himself. A tragic conflict arises from her failure to overcome Achilles and the love she conceives for him. Achilles, who returns her passion, consents to meet her once more in battle, secretly resolved to let her vanquish him. Penthesilea in her proud despair slays Achilles and subsequently stabs herself.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
