THE poet Dowson, who died so young in the first year of this present century, wrote a ' Dramatic Fantasy,' called The Pierrot of the Minute. It is a dreamlike, fanciful poem, which stirred the imagination of Bantock, and with this as subject, he wrote a ' Comedy Overture ' for Orchestra.
Bantock himself gives us the story thus : —
' Pierrot enters a glade in the park of the Petit Trianon at twilight, led thither in obedience to a mysterious message, which bids him come to sleep one night within these precincts, if he would encounter Lovo. Half whimsical, half fearful, he wonders why he, so careless, thoughtless, and gay, should be filled with wistful longing, and in the fast-falling darkness he lies down on a couch of fern, and falls asleep. A Moon-Maiden descends the steps of the Temple of Love, and, bending over the sleeper, kisses him. He awakens and throws himself at her feet in rapt devotion, though she warns him that the kisses of the Moon are of a fatal sweetness, and that
" Whoso seeks her she gathers like a flower;
Ho gives a life, and only gains an hour."
' But Pierrot, reckless, demands the puro and perfect bliss, though life be the price to pay. With gay laughter and sprightly jest they leam together the lore of Love ; but daybreak approaches, the birds awaken, and the Moon-maiden must leave him. Together they gaze at the coming dawn ; then Piorrot sinking back on his couch, falls softly asleep once more, and the Moon-maiden vanishes.
' The Prelude ends with the awakening of Pierrot, his love-dream being but the illusion of a minute.'

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
