(Section B), leader Paul Beard ,
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
The story of The Fire-Bird is based upon a Russian legend. The Fire-Bird flies through a glade in the forest. Prince Ivan pursues it to the gates of the enchanted castle of Kashchez, the magician and fiend. There he captures the Fire-Bird, who offers him a single golden feather, a magic protection in all times of danger.
In the castle gardens are thirteen
.princesses, captives of Kashchez. Ivan falls in love with one of them and they all dance until dawn. He tries to follow them into the castle but he is seized by the guards. Ivan summons the Fire-Bird, who draws all the inhabitants into a frantic dance, and when they sink exhausted to the ground lulls them to sleep. Ivan then gets hold of the magic egg in which the life of Kashchez is contained, smashes it, and the monster dies. All the captives are released and join in a joyous dance.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
