: THE NEWMILNS BURGH BAND

Conductor, GEORGE HAWKINS
An operetta, Fatinitza, by Suppé was put on at the Alhambra in Leicester Square, and another, Boccaccio, at the Comedy Theatre a year or two later. That was fifty and more years ago, long forgotten, and all we really know of a once very popular composer of operettas in Vienna is an overture or two, such as Poet and Peasant and Light Cavalry. The Overture, ' Beautiful Galatea however, is unfamiliar to modern audiences. Suppé was for years conductor at the famous Theatre an der Wien, and many of his very numerous operettas were produced there. It was at this theatre, too, that Johann Strauss had a great success with Die Fledermaus and his other world-famous operettas. Suppé must often have conducted there.

Grand Solemn March in E flat Smart
On the site of the Cathedral St. Kentigern, better known as St. Mungo, the patron saint of Glasgow, erected a church in the sixth century, at the end of which, according to tradition, the remains of the holy man were laid to rest in 603. Glasgow Cathedral, the finest specimen of pre-Reformation Gothic architecture in Scotland, was founded in 1123. The style is pure, early English Gothic, the choir showing the earliest form of decorated windows. The crypt, or lower church, is architecturally the finest part of the building. It was long used as the church for the Barony Parish and in ' Rob Roy ' Sir Walter Scott describes very vividly, doubtless from personal experience, the impression produced on a stranger by a service in this extraordinary, subterranean place of worship.

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.
