THE Second Suite made from Bizet's music to Daudet's play of Provencal life contains :—
(1) PASTORALE. The chief melody in this piece is taken from a peasant's chorus in the play (Bizet also uses it for a song, Le Matin).
(2) INTERMEZZO. The melody of this is familiar because Bizet used it as the basis of a setting of the Agnus Dei.
(4) FARANDOLE. This, in the play; was a chorus sung in praise of St. Eloi. After a March-like introduction, an old Provencal song-and-dance tune comes in. This is the Farandole, and with it the March theme is later combined.
SOME of the most charming light dances of our time are the work of Edward German. This Suite, first performed at a Crystal Palace
Saturday Concert in 1892, contains four Movements illustrating different sides of. gipsy life, as seen through the eyes of the Composer.
The First is entitled Melancholy Waltz ; the Second is a quick, flamboyant Dance beginning with a stamping rhythm ; the Third, a Lovo Duct, light and graceful, is again in Waltz style ; the Fourth, The Revel, is a Tarantella, a descendant of that wild dance which in a simpler age was esteemed a cure for the bite of the tarantula spider.

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.
