Edouard La!o's first opera, The King Q/' Ys, includes the scene of an inundation, for it wiM be recalled that in the )egend the city of Ys was submerged in the sea. The subject is a Breton one, and probably attracted Lalo as, a) though he was of Spanish descent, Brittany was his birthplace. The inundation scene is a very remarkable piece of music, and probably contributed to the success of the opera, apart from the overture, which has always been popular in concert ha)Is. Four years ago the opera was broadcast on two occasions from the London studio.
Paderewski has writteh a number of compositions, including a Pianoforte Concerto, a symphony, two operas, and the Polish Fantasia to be performed this evening. This Fantasia is built on original Polish tunes and is a graceful and brilliant tribute to Paderewski's native country.

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.
