An Opera by Hamish MacCunn
(abridged for broadcasting)
The BBC Scottish Singers
The BBC Scottish Orchestra
Leader, Mouland Begbie
Conducted by Ian Whyte
Cast
This opera was first produced in 1894 in Edinburgh by the Royal Carl Rosa Opera Company, and was two years later performed in London after much success up and down the country.
The work, which is in four acts, follows closely the story of Jeanie and Effie Deans in ' The Heart of Midlothian' by Sir Walter Scott. The scene opens before the cottage of Davie Deans , with the Salisbury Crags in the background. In the first act the well-known dance air ' Tullochgorum' is played by a fiddler.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
