Eighth Concert of the Season
Relayed from the Queen's Hall
Conducted by Sir HAMILTON HARTY
"BERLIOZ' 'Symphonic Entr'acte ' represents
-D a scene in ' a virgin forest in the neighbourhood of Carthage.' Naiads appear, and bathe. The hunt is heard in the distance, gradually getting nearer, and thp naiads vanish. Various hunters cross the scene. A storm approaches. While the storm increases, Ascanias. son of Æneas, gallops past, followed by other huntsmen. The storm approaches its height, and night falls. Dido and /Eneas, hunting, arrive and take refuge in a cave.
Wood Nymphs appear, singing, with Fauns and Satyrs, all of whom dance a grotesque dance in the darkness. A little stream in the rocks becomes a noisy cataract. Lightning strikes a tree, and finally the whole scene is obscured by dense clouds. The storm at length abates and the clouds scatter.


Conducted By: Sir Hamilton Harty

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.
