Musical Director, RICHARD AUSTIN
Relayed from the Glen Pavilion , Clifton, Bristol
SIR HERBERT TREE, the great actor-manager who made His Majesty's' Theatre famous for many years as the home of spectacular poetic drama (Shakespeare included), had a great enthusiasm for the plays of Stephen Phillips. Of these he produced, in lavish style, Herod, Ulysses, Nero and Faust. In each case he asked Samuel Coleridge -Taylor to provide the Incidental Music. From his music to Faust, written in 1908, the composer arranged an orchestral suite, consisting of The Dance of the Witches, The Four Visions and Dance and Song from the Devil's Kitchen scene.
MASSENET wrote incidental music for a play by Leconte do Lisle, Les ErinnyeS (The
Furies), dealing with the tragedy of Orestos, who murdered his mother Klytemnestra to avenge her murder of his father. The Furies, us the instruments of vengeance, torment Orestes. The usual Suite selected from this music consists of three pieces of Ballet Music—a Grecian Dance., The Trojan Maiden's Lament for her Country, and a Bacchanal.

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.
