(Loader, FRANK CANTELL)
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS SAINT-SAENS' Suite Algerienne is one of the famous French composer's most picturesque and attractive compositions, embodying in musical terms his impressions of Algiers, which he visited several times. The first movement is a prelude descriptive of a view of Algiers, seen in panorama from the bridge of a ship. Sounds from the shore are hoard, amongst them the call to Allah. At the end of the movement, the ship has arrived in harbour. The second movement is a Moorish Rhapsody.
In one of the numerous Moorish cafes of the old town, the Arabs join in their national dance, by turns sensuous or savage, to the sound of flutes, rebecs, and tambourines. The third movement, probably the best known in the Suite, arranged as it has been in many different forms, is the Evening Reverie, at Blidah. Under the palm trees of an oasis, in the perfumed night, there is heard from afar off a love song with a caressing refrain from a flute.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
