Saint-Saens' Algerian Suite is one of the composer's most picturesque and attractive works. It consists of a series of impressions of Algiers.
The first movement is a prelude descriptive of a view of Algiers, seen in panorama from the bridge of a ship. Sounds from the shore are heard, amongst them the call to Allah. At the end of the movement, the ship lias arrived in harbour.
The second movement is a Moorish
Rhapsody. In one of the numerous Moorish cafés of the old town, the Arabs join in their national dance, by turns sensuous or savage, to the sound of flutes, rebecs, and tambourines.
The third movement, probably the best known in the Suite, arranged as it has been in many different forms, is the Evening Reveries, at Blidab, Under the palm trees of an oasis, in the perfumed night, there is heard from afar off a love song with a caressing refrain from a flute.

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.
