Relayed from the Pavilion, Bournemouth
This work is founded upon a poem entitled ' Gwyn-ap-Nudd ', by T. E. Ellis (Lord Howard de Walden). An old Cambrian legend, it speaks of the love of Gwyn-ap-Nudd (King of Faerie) for Cordelia, the daughter of Lear, for whom he fights with Gwythyr and Greidawl on every first of May till the day of doom. The following quotations give the key to each movement:
No. 1.—Allegro
' Open the gates of mirrored horn !
Summon the hosts of pool and lawn'
No. 2.—Adagio
' Clotted of shadows he comes to my hest
A fiery eyed phantom
No. 3.—Molto fuoco
' Blade that meets hlade with never a sound,
Horses that shall leave not a print on the ground '
The work is in the usual symphonic form, and a new cadenza has been added since the work first appeared and was performed under Sir Dan Godfrey by the composer in 1906. It is one of Holbrooke's best known works.

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.
