RUSSIAN SONOS
Sung by TATIANA MAKUSHINA
The Dreary Steppe. As I walk in the lonely steppe in the darkness I think of thee, and it seems that all grows brighter and lovelier around me.
Over the Mountain. When I hear the cock crow on the hill, when I see the water ripple on the lake-sad is my heart.
In the Early Morning. When the first birds sing in the morning a maiden weeps, imprisoned on a rock in the middle of the sea. Neither her father nor mother have pity for her, but there comes a handsome youth who sees her plight and saves her.
All Things Depart. I cannot sing merry songs, when I think of how all things pass and vanish for ever.
Lilac. I will go and seek my luck in the lilac, for I am sure I shall find it there.
0, never sing to me again. Thy songs awaken memories that are too sweet and too sad.

The Dreary Steppe - Gretchaninov

: THE TESTAMENT OF BEAUTY'

A Reading by Miss SACKVILLE WEST from
Dr. ROBERT BRIDGE'S Poem
ON hia eighty-fifth birthday, the Poet
Laureate published a poem longer and finer than anything he had ever written before. ' It is '-to quote the Times — the out-pouring of the accumulated wisdom, experience, scholarship, and poetic craftsmanship of one of the richest and mellowest spirits of our time.' ' The Testament of Beauty,' which is dedicated to the King, is a philosophical poem of more than 4,000 lines ; it is the good fruit of a long life ; it should serve to remind the pessimists that, even today, ' mighty spirits ore abroad.' Though philosophical, the poem is starred throughout with beautiful passages of natural description such as we expect from this master-painter's hand; for the rest, it ranges over the whole gamut of life-not omiting, incidentally, a tribute to broadcasting. Unthinking critics have not been slow to complain of our Poet Laureate's ' inactivity' : but Dr Bridges, from the dignified isolation of a great mind and heart, has bided his time and now, at the conclusions of his long life, he has given to the world a poem calculated to restore our faith in the power of poetry and our belief that the age of Titans is not dead.

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

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.
