DVORAK, the Bohemian composer, wrote, in the early 'nineties, a Symphony in three
Movements based upon a poetical scheme as follows: (1) Childhood's Innocence ; (2) Youth's Wild Joys and Loves ; (3) Manhood's Passions.
Then, on reflection, he broke the three Movements apart from one another and published them as three separate works, which he called Overtures. Of these Carnival is the second.
High spirits are the note of this Overture. The title's suggestion of the eager enjoyments of Carnival time fits it perfectly.
specially written for the occasion by ERIC FOGG.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
