JACK WERNER (pianoforte)
Rossini's last opera, William Tell, was a much more serious work than The
Barber of Seville and the other light-hearted operas of his early career. The libretto is based on Schiller's famous play, and Rossini put his best effort into making the opera as dignified a work as the subject called for. Where, in the play, room could be found for a ballet it is difficult to say, but no opera in those days, however serious, would have been tolerated in performance un!ess it provided for the appearance of the corps de ballet. William Tell was no exception to this inviolable rule.

: Scottish Dance Music

Piping and Fiddling
(From Glasgow)
On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at this time twenty minutes of Scottish dance music will be broadcast. Listeners who prefer the more modern forms of music will find something to their liking in the National programme. The Scottish dance programmes may be recorded or supplied by the Reel Players, Scottish Studio Orchestra, and Strathspey Societies, or, as in the present case, by a piper and a fiddler in the studio.

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.
