Nights in the Gardens of Spain
(Falla) : Manuel Navarro (piano) and Orquesta de Sevilla
Suite : Iberia (Albeniz—Arbos) :
Madrid Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Enrique Fernandez Arbos
Falla's ' Nights in the Gardens of Spain.' completed in 1916, was first -, heard in England in 1921. According to the composer, ' the themes employed are based op the rhythms, modes, cadences, and ornamental figures which distinguished the popular music of Andalucia, although they are rarely used in their original forms ; and the orchestration frequently employs, and employs in a conventional manner, certain effects peculiar to the popular instruments used in those parts of Spain. The music has no pretensions to being descriptive : it is merely expressive. But something more than the sounds of festivals and dances has inspired these "evocations in -sound." for melancholy and mystery have their part also.'

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.

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