TN The Youth of Hercules, the fourth and last of Saint-Saens'
Symphonic Poems, he takes for his hero Hercules, one of whose exploits had formed the subject of his earlier orchestral work, Ompilule's Spinning Wheel.
He prints in his score the outline of the plot.' Mythology tells, he says, how Hercules in early years saw two paths in life—that of dalliance in pleasure,' and that of virtue. Indifferent to the seductions of nymphs and bacchantes, the hero chooses the way of struggle and combat, at the end of which he discerns through the flames of the funeral pyre the reward of immortality.
CIAN is a one-act
Ba'let, concerned with Andalusian gipsy life. C a n d e a a s, a young, beautiful, and passionate gipsy woman, has loved a handsome man of her own race. After his death she falls in love with Cnrmelo, another young gipsy, but is haunted by the jealous spectre of her former lover, of which she cannot free herself. Eventually, the ghost is laid, and Candelas and Carmelo are united. The Suite was compiled by de Falla from extracts from his ballet music.


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.
