The Station Orchestra
conducted by Warwick Braithwaite

Ravel's suite of dances in waltz rhythm has as a motto a quotation from the poet Henri de Regnier: 'The ever new and delightful pleasure of a useless occupation'.
In its original form (for Piano) the set of waltzes was played in 1911 at a concert at which all the items appeared on the programme without the composers' names, and the audience was invited to try to discover their identity. A majority correctly ascribed the Waltzes to Ravel, but Saint-Saens, Satie, d'Indy, Messager and other composers were named by some listeners.
The arrangement for Orchestra was made in the following year.
There are in all seven short dance sections, with an Epilogue in slow time.

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.
