The Station Orchestra, conducted by Warwick Braithwaite
In 1910 Coleridge-Taylor was commissioned by Sir Herbert Tree (for some of whose productions he had already written incidental music) to compose music for Alfred Noyes' fairy play, The Forest of Wild Thyme. The play was not, after all, put on the stage by Tree, and the composer issued some of his music under various titles -Three Dream Dances and Scenes from an Imaginary Ballet, among others. This Christmas Overture is another part of that incidental music. There are in the complete suite five pieces.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
