We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
IIADOV'S piece also has the title
Valse Badinage. It was originally a little jest written for the Piano, and dedicated to the Composer's son. Then Liadov scored it for Piccolo, two Flutes, three Clarinets, Bells and Harp. The effect is very realistic.
A S most people know, the plot of Humperdinck's most typical and charming work,
Hansel and Gretel, is taken from Grimm's fairy tales. It tells of the witch who enticed boys and girls to her gingerbread house, and then cooked and ate them.
The Dream Music (also called Dream Pantomime) comes in the Second Act. Two children have lost their way in the forest. They fall asleep and dream that angels descend a golden staircase and move in procession around them. In Humperdinck's music to this scene we hear two leading themes, one a cradle-song and the other a hynin-like tune-a prayer.

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.
