Bizet's charming reflections on the pretty ways of children include a miniature March, picturing a procession approaching and passing into the distance, a Cradle Song for Muted Strings and Woodwind, an Impromptu, subtitled The Pegtop, a Duet between Little Husband and Little Wife, and finally a ball-room scene, The Galop.

Mendelssohn wrote his delicious 'Midsummer Night's Dream' Scherzo as a Prelude to the Act in which Puck and Titania's fairy band play the gayest part.
The monk Athanael has visited his old friend, Thais, in an attempt to convert her from her wicked life.
He has pleaded with her, and she has openly mocked him. But he is not discouraged, and has left her with the words, 'At thy threshold until daylight I will await thy coming.'
Here, in Massenet's Opera, is played the well-known Meditation, a long Violin Solo.
In the end Thais repents and takes the veil, and Athanael finds too late that he is incurably in love with her.

Relayed from the Glen Pavilion, Clifton, Bristol.

Conducted by Conrad W. Eden

The first of the two Elgar songs is one of the most recently written. It has as sub-title 'Remember,' and the poem, by Richard Mardon, pictures old soldiers recollecting their march song, and all the memories it brings.
His other song is a brief, delicate page, a lover's aspiration to be the wild wind when his lady is abroad, or a red rose, 'so she'd pull me with her hand and to her snowy breast I'd win.'

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
