: DEBUSSY

Children's Corner Suite
Played by Nina Milkina (piano) Debussy dedicated this charming little suite ' To my dear little Chou-Chou with her father's tender excuses for what follows '.
The first piece, a parody on Clementi's dull studies, is called ' Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum ' ; the original titles of the other pieces were all in English, at least in Debussyan English.
The second piece, ' Jimbo's Lullaby ', should obviously have been ' Jumbo's Lullaby ', but Debussy insisted that ' Jimbo is the elephant's name, not Jumbo '. It is certainly elephantine but Debussy remembered that the elephant is a gentle beast.
Then come ' Serenade for the Doll
(he meant ' to the doll '), ' The snow is. dancing ', The Little Shepherd ' and ' Golliwog's Cake-Walk '. In the middle of the last-named, an amusing experiment in ragtime, Debussy wickedly inserted a quotation from ' the Prelude to Tristan marking it ' with great emotion

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.
