by Frank Titterton (tenor)
Frank Titterton , one of the most famous tenors in England, gained much of his 'experience with the British National Opera Company. Radio listeners have heard him frequently in operatic broadcasts from the studio, and he has also taken part in Promenade and BBC Symphony Concerts in Queen's Hall. He began his career as an amateur by singing the tenor rôles of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas with the Birmingham Opera Company. His first serious studies were with Ernesto Baraldi and later with Charles Victor.
In broadcast opera, perhaps his most notable performances have been his singing of Grisha in Kitezh under Albert Coates , and the Juggler in The Juggler of Notre Dame under the late Percy Pitt.

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.
