Part 1
The Nursery Song on which Dohnanyi has based his Variations is * Ah, vous dirai-je, maman,' which is also the theme of a set of keyboard variations by Mozart (in English it is known as Baa, baa, black sheep '). The contrast between this simple little tune, which appears after an impressive introduction, and the elaborate and brilliantly scored variations, is very striking. There are eleven variations and a Finale: in the fifth there is an imitation of a musical box; number seven is a waltz, number eight a march, and there is a fugue in the Finale. The work is dedicated * to the enjoyment of lovers of humour and to the annoyance of others.'
Saint-SaEns' Symphonic Poem is a musical portrayal of the legend of Hercules, enslaved by Omphale, the Lydian Queen, and made to perform servile tasks. As well as the whirr of the spinning wheel, you can hear during the course of the music the suggestion of Hercules struggling to be free of his bonds and Omphale mocking at his vain efforts.—Harold Rutland

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.
