relayed from Beale's
Restaurant, Old Christchureh Road
Directed by GILBERT STACEY VALSE TRISTE is the most popular com
' position of the Finnish composer, Jean Sibelius. Here is a brief description of the dramatic scene it is intended to convey.
A youth has fallen asleep at night by the sick-bed of his mother. Slowly the dark room lights up with a red glow, and a valse-tune is heard in the distance. The dying woman leaves her bed, and, swaying to the lilt of the music, summons dancers, who now enter the room. The mother dances with them until she falls on her bed exhausted. But she, makes a supreme effort and the dance is renewed, wilder than ever. At its height, there comes a rap at the door. The sick woman cries out. the dancers and the music are gone. Death has come,

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
