A prima ballerina oh honeymoon in Spain meets the famous Spanish dancer Antonio and finds herself dancing opposite him in 'The Lovers of Teruel,' much to the disgust of her husband.
Honeymoon includes two long ballet performances, 'The Lovers of Teruel,' composed by Mikis Theodorakis (who wrote the music for Zorba the Greek) with choreography by Leonide Massine; and 'El Amor Brujo,' written by Spain's greatest composer, Manuel de Falla, with choreography by Antonio. Both sequences were conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham. The former is danced by Ludmilla Tcherina and Antonio, and the latter by Leonide Massine, Rosita Segovia, and Antonio who as a dancer has achieved world fame, but here proves he has a captivating acting personality.

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.
