Gretry's opera L'Epreuve villageoise, from which this ballet music comes, is founded on the story of the devoted couple whose affection was all the stronger after each in turn had found the other out in a moment of infidelity.
L'Epreuve villageoise was one of over fifty operas of Gretry which were successfully produced in Paris during his life-time (1741-1813). Gritry has been called ' the Moliere of music'.

: THE BBC ORCHESTRA

Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Andre Messager was born in 1853, studied at the Ecole Niedermayer in Paris, and later became the pupil of Saint-Saens. He began writing opéra-comique and then came to England and wrote a number of light operas that were extremely successful.
The suite is from the ballet The Two Pigeons, which is a ballet in six movements. The first is a march, energetic and with a hint of Hungarian rhythm ; the second is the dance of the two pigeons, dignified and capricious by turns ; the third is a theme with three variations. The fourth is a sort of interlude, sprightly and full of interest; the fifth a Hungarian dance, and the last is in a very quick march rhythm.

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.

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.
