'I have seen dawn and sunset on moors and windy hills
Coming in solemn beauty like slow old tunes of Spain' -John Masefield

Granados (1867-1916) found inspiration for his most important compositions in the work of Francisco Goya , the celebrated painter of scones from Spanish life. He composed a set of Pianoforte pieces called Goyescas, giving in another medium impressions of the scenes depicted by the artist. He also made an Opera out of the episodes he treated in these Pianoforte suites, and it is from this latter work that we are to hear an extract.
The dance-song, the Habanera, came to Spain from Africa by way of Cuba. Chabrier, a Frenchman of flamboyant spirit, was considerably attracted by the gay rhythms of Spanish popular music.
Manuel De Falla (born in 1876) is one of the leading figures in modern Spanish music. To national idioms be has added some sympathetic cosmopolitan influences, such as Debussy's; Stravinsky is not unknown to him.

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.
