: ' From the Operas'

NEIL FORSYTH (baritone)
MALE VOICES OF THE BBC SCOTTISH SINGERS
THE BBC
SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA
Leader, J. MOULAND BEGBIE
Conducted by KEMLO STEPHEN
Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari was born in Venice in 1876, and studied in Germany under Rhcinberger. From 1902 to 1912 he was Director of the School of Benedetto Marcello in Venice, and produced many eighteenth-century operas there. The influence of the style of that period is evident in several of his own works.
More than twenty years ago The
Secret of Suzanna, a charming little one-act opera, was put on at Covent Garden. The music, although modern in style, has in some places quite a Mozartian touch. But a plot that turns on a wife smoking a cigarette in secret and being discovered by a shocked but forgiving husband strikes the present age as too silly to be either funny or fantastic, and the ingenuous little opera is now heard no more.
Wolf-Ferrari's next opera, The
Jewels of the Madonna, was altogether different. It dealt with the dreaded Camorra, Italian ' toughs ', and brutal emotions-a kind of operatic ' On the Spot'. The music, passionate and picturesque, made of the lurid drama a riot of colour.

The church of St. Mary the Virgin stands on the left bank of the Tyne and is one of the largest churches built in the great building period of the late fourteenth to the late fifteenth century. The nave has been altered and restored and is used as the Parish Church, but other divisions have become ruinous and are under the care of H.M. Office of Works.
Haddington itself is an ancient Royal
Burgh and a town of great importance in history. There was a royal residence there in the twelfth century where William the Lion resided and where his son Alexander, 11 was born. Destroyed by fire in 1216 and 1244, Haddington played a prominent part in the wars of independence. In the Abbey a Scottish Parliament in 1548 sanctioned the marriage of Mary Queen of Scots and the Dauphin of France. Cromwell visited the town and it was from there that Sir John Cope marched to meet the army of Prince Charles Edward Stuart at Prest'onpans. Haddington, also, is claimed by some authorities as the birthplace of John Knox.

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.
