: Life Here and There: Hills and Moorlands

H. J. Moon
This is the first of three fortnightly talks on the wild life you are likely to come across during summer holidays in the North. The other two will deal with the seashore and the animal life in rivers and pools.


Speaker: H.J. Moon

: The BBC Northern Orchestra

Carl Maria von Weber was thirty-nine when he died in London of consumption. He had aggravated his disease and worn himself out: first, by hard work at the composition of the opera, Oberon, which the Covent Garden authorities had commissioned from him, and secondly, by conducting a series of performances of his operas at Covent Garden Theatre and a number of concerts in London in fulfilment of his contract. Knowing that he had not long to live, he had entered into this contract with the sole object of making provision for his family, since it was to bring in at least a thousand pounds. Never was money more painfully earned. But Oberon is far from being the work of a frail man, and the Overture is a virile piece of music, full of romantic flavour and delicate beauty, and ranks with Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream music as being one of the finest examples of fairy music

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.
