SAINT-SAENS' Tone Poem is based on the classical tale of how Phaeton persuaded his father, the Sun, to let him drive the Fiery Chariot across the sky. Listeners will remember that in the old tale the horses got cut of hand, and the chariot was on the point of crashing into the earth to wreck it, when Jupiter hurled a thunderbolt which destroyed the youth and his car.
There is a short aid impressive introduction, and then we hear the galloping steeds, and, a little later, a pompous tune on the brasses no doubt stands for the young Phaeton himself. Four horns afterwards play a fine broad melody, which is thought to be the dirge of the Sun over the boy's death. The music works up to a great p i t c h of excitement, and against a strenuous version of the Phaeton theme, we can quite clearly hear tho falling of the thunderbolt and, at last, tho lament.

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.
