When Weber was scarcely more than a boy he was given the post of conductor of the Opera of Breslau. Within a year, at the age of eighteen, he had made his third attempt at opera, composing some numbers to a libretto called Iiubezahl, written by the manager of the theatre. The story was of the usual romantic-fantastic type common at that period, and Weber had the patience to set to music only three numbers of the opera, including an overture. He then forgot all about it for six years, but later on holiday in Switzerland he looked again at the MS. of the overture, found it good, re-titled it Beherrscher der Geister, and conducted it on his return to Vienna at a brilliantly successful concert on an easily remembered date, November nth, 1811.
In this second suite from Music to a Child's Play, the first movement, a march, is the longest and most elaborately worked out. In Little Bells actual bells are included. In the third movement we are to suppose the Moths and Butterflies dancing in the sun, and :n the fourth, Fountain Dance, the sparkling water is vividly presented to us. Although in the fifth movement
The Tame Bear is for the most part well-mannered, we are here and there reminded that he is, nevertheless, a bear and can still growl ; The Wild Bears bring the suite to an end with great energy.

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.
