SAINT-SAËNS, who, throughout a great part of his long and busy life, was the acknowledged master musician of France, was a great traveller. As pianist, organist, and composer, he visited most of the countries of the world, but travelled besides for his own pleasure, and was more than once in Algiers. Listeners will remember that it was there that he died at the end of 1021, at the ripe old age of 86. This Suite records his impressions of an earlier visit to the North of Africa, and is worked out with all his skill in the use of the orchestral instruments, to give a very vivid and picturesque impression of that sunny part of the world.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
