The Station Orchestra

Chabrier's picture of Spain suggests not only the warmth and colour of that country, but also his own eager, gaily flamboyant nature. Into the brilliant and glowing piece the rhythms of Spanish folk music naturally enter, and the percussion instruments are prominent.
In 1880 Tchaikovsky paid a visit to Italy, and was pleased with tho popular tunes he heard people singing there. Some of them he worked up into this 'Fantasia' (as he called it) - a piece in the cheerful spirit of peasants in rude health.
The opening military 'call' is a reminiscence of the music the Composer heard when he stayed near a barracks in Rome. Then various folk-songs are brought in. The last section of this work is in the style of the lively Tarantella dance.

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.
