'RODELINDA'

Act 1 of the opera by Handel from Dartington Hall
Conductor, Hans Oppenheim
Scene 1, Rodelinda's chamber at early morning
Scene 2, Cypress grove with grave-stones of the Lombard Kings
Handel's opera Rodelinda was broadcast in the ' Foundations of Music ' series in 1935. In an article in the RADIO TIMES Professor E. J. Dent summed up the plot of the first Act as follows :
' The curtain rises on the apartments of Rodelinda, who is mourning the supposed death of her husband, Bertarido, in a disastrous battle. Grimoaldo, the villain of the opera, who has seized the crown, proposes to marry her, but she repulses him with indignation. Garibaldo, a treacherous ally of Grimoaldo, advises him to win the queen by force, and to take no notice of Eduige, Bertarido's sister, who is in love with him.
The next scene shows the tombs of the Lombard kings, with the cenotaph of Bertarido, who is himself present in disguise. After reading his own epitaph, he is joined by his faithful old retainer Unulfo, and together they watch Rodelinda and her little son pay honours to the empty tomb. Grimoaldo enters and seizes the child; Rodelinda, in order to save the child, consents to marry Grimoaldo, but at the same time tells Garibaldo that she will have him put to death. Grimoaldo cynically assures him that under his protection he will be safe.'
The rest of the opera is concerned with the working out of this intrigue, the final Act ending with the reconciliation of Rodelinda and her husband.

SPEECHES

by The Rt. Hon Sir Thomas Inskip.
M.P. and On. Carlo Delcroix at the Banquet given by H.M. Government to the delegates of the Comite International Permanent des Anciens Combattants from Grosvenor House
The Comite International Permanent des Anciens Combattants was formed in Rome on November 6, 1936, and embraces all the combatants in the Great War, with the exception at present of America. The British Legion is the representative organisation in Great Britain.
For the first time a conference is being held in England, and tonight the delegates are being entertained by His Majesty's Government at Grosvenor House. Sir Thomas Inskip , Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence since 1936, will be in the chair, and his speech proposing the health of the Comite will be heard, as will the reply of that valiant soldier, Major Carlo Delcroix , who will speak, it is assumed, in Ital.an. Listeners will hear him giving the beginning and end of his speech the gist of which, while he is speaking, will be given in English by John Snagge.
Major Delcroix, who lost his sight and both hands in the war, is President of the Comité, and also
President of the Disabled Ex-Service
Association in Italy; he is a Commandant of the Bersaglieri, and a Corporal-of-Honour of the Italian
Militia; a Chevalier of the Civil
Order of Savoy, and a Member of the Italian Parliament. Recently he visited England with a delegation of Italian ex-Servicemen and placed a wreath on the Cenotaph.

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.
