Selection from the Ballet Music to 'Prometheus'
Beethocen
THE music for . the Ballet The
Men of Prometheus was the first of Beethoven's works of any importance that was connected with tho stage. He wrote an Overture, with an ' Introduction ' and sixteen incidental pieces, for the work, which was produced in Vienna in 1801 (when he was thirty-one).
The Ballet was based on the legend of Prometheus, who made clay images of men and stole fire from heaven to bring them to life.
The Ballet was highly successful, being presented sixteen times in the year of its composition, and thirteen times in 1802.

: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
ROBERT EASTON (Baritone)
COCKAIGNE is a picture of London, the town of the Cockneys; a picture of bustling. cheery, noisy existence. wiUi Romance threading its way bravely through the clatter.
The meaning of Elgar's tunes will be apparent to all who hear them. As the pageant passes we see a number of people in a hurry, a sober citizen or two, a pair of lovers, a cheeky miniature version of the sober citizen, a military band-first in the distance end then close by, the lovers seeking seclusion in a church; the street again with its familar associations.

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.
