. Conductor, T. H. MORRISON
In March, 1933, Henri Duparc died at the age of eighty-five. In an appreciation of the composer Edwin Evans wrote that the reputation of Duparc ' rests upon a handful of songs the last of which was composed nearly fifty years ago. It has been truly said of him that, before his time, France had nothing to which it could point as worthy of comparison with the German Lieder, but his example helped to inspire Faure, Chausson, and others whose songs prepared the way for those of Debussy.'
Owing to ill health and an unusual degree of self-criticism, Duparc published only a very small number of compositions, most of which are of first-rate quality. ' To the Stars ' was composed in 1873, the second of about half-a-dozen orchestral works, but was not published until 1910. Scored for a small orchestra, it is described as an ' entr'acte for an unpublished drama ', and bears the following quotation: ' The sidereal light of night ! Who knows what are the secret virtues of this light, so humble, yet proceeding from immensity ? '

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

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.
