BRAHMS' Hungarian Dances must be well known to countless listeners who have very little interest in the rest of his work. He was not a Hungarian himself, but the verve and rhythm of their dances and folk songs interested him keenly all his musical life. And he made use of them in many ways in his own works. It is supposed that his interest in them was first aroused when, as a young man, he went on tour with the Hungarian violinist Remenyi, and that may well be true. Remenyi was himself an enthusiast in the folk music of his own country, and played many of the native airs so that Brahms heard them in aU their native vigour and charm.
The Hungarian Dances appeared first as pianoforte duets, for two players at the one keyboard, and they soon became so popular all over the world that arrangements of them in all manner of other ways quickly came into being. The great Joachim arranged them for violin, and Piatti for violoncello, with pianoforte accompaniment, and orchestras and Military Bands everywhere seized on them as splendid additions to the popular repertory.
There can be but few listeners to whatever kind of programme who have not heard and enjoyed some of them.

Ballet Music, ' Herodiade ' Massenet
THE Bible story of Herod and Salomé has been used several times as the plot for operas, and in Massenet's version is set forth with such grim realism that when the Opera was produced in English, several changes had to be made before it was thought to be fit for a British audience. The music, however, is rich in all those qualities of melodious charm which Massenet had at command,, and the ballet music gave him opportunities of which he knew better than most operatic composers how to take full advantage. Its popularity has always been assured, whether as a part of the opera, or as concert music.

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.
