HERE are five delightful little pieces founded on French fairy-tales.
The FIRST is The Pavane of the Sleeping Beauty, a slow, graceful dance.
The SECOND is called Hop o' my Thumb.
At the head of the music the following quotation is printed : ' He thought he could easily find his way by means of the crumbs that he had scattered as he passed along. But he had a rude surprise, for he couldn't find one single crumb. The birds had come and eaten them all up ! '
You can almost see the forlorn little fellow wandering about.
The THIRD is called Lauleronette, Empress of the Pagodas. It pictures little China figures singing and playing miniature instruments.
The FOURTH is a Conversation between Beauty and the Beast, ending in the creature's transformation into the Prince.
The FIFTH piece is The Fairy Garden. Hero
Prince Charming finds the Sleeping Beauty. As he kisses her, the Princess open her eyes. Then the Courtiers enter, wedding bells are heard merrily ringing, and the 'happy ever after' begins as auspiciously as any orchestra can possibly suggest.

: PROMENADE CONCERT

(Continued) THE scenes are thus enti tled: (1) Introduction. The Enchanted Garden of Kastchei ; (2) The Supplications of the Bird of Fire (when captured by the Prince); (3) The Princesses playing with the Golden Apples ; (4) The Princesses Vance a Round ; (5) Demon Dance of Kastchei's Subjects.
HOLST'S Somerset Rhapsody (in his earlier and simpler manner) gives a charming treatment of some pleasant folk-tune material-first a sheep-shearing song, then High Germany, then The True Lover's Farewell (these two work together for a little), and The Cuckoo. The work was written about 1908 and first performed in 1910.








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.
