: THE BBC MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
The Overture ' Rosamunde ' did not originally form a part of the music written for the rather stupid play of Rosamunde, Princess of Cyprus, which was quite unworthy of Schubert's attention. Actually the overture was composed for a melodrama entitled The Magic Harp, and it was performed as such at the Theater an der Wien in 1820. Three years later Schubert wrote the 'Rosamunde' music, including an overture since called by another title ' Alfonso and Estrella ', ' The Magic Harp ' overture now being known at ' Rosamunde '.

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.
