DAME ETHEL SMYTH 'S one-act opera, Fete Galante , is written to a text based upon one of Maurice Baring's characteristic fantasies. The scene is a moon-lit Watteau garden, the characters' include Pierrot, Harlequin, Pantaloon, and Columbine, and the sub-title, ' A Dance Dream,' aptly visualises the story which, with all its fantastical gossamer sentiment, ends on a note of tragedy. The opera was first produced at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre in 1P23 ; later the British National Opera Company mounted it at Covent Garden, and took it on tour.
WILLIAM WALTON 'S Siesta is a comparatively recent work by the brilliant young British composer who in every now work he produces enhances his already considerable reputation. It is scored for small orchestra without heavy brass and percussion, and the nature of the music is adequately foreshadowed in the title.
THE first really complete book upon ' The -L Dance ' is Thoinot Arbeau 's Orchesographie, published in 1588. An English translation of this famous work was published a few years ago, and one can imagine that Peter Warlock , whose interest in ancient music was part of his scholarship, was attracted to the wealth of authentic information it contained. This suite Capriol would appear to have had its origin in the study of Arbeau, who describes in great detail all the dances which make up the separate movements of the suite. A brief explanation of tho most important of these dances may assist tho listener to a better understanding of them. The title itself, Capriol, means a caper, and as a term in the dance means a leap into the air. It was said of the celebrated eighteenth-century dancer, Vestris the younger, that his leaps were so high and so prolonged that he descended to earth only out of consideration for the feelings of his less-talented colleagues. The Basse Dance and the Pavane are two of the oldest known dances ; botli were danced in couples and were danced in a staid manner ; the former belonged more to the people and was slow and dignified, while the Pavane belonged to the Court and was formal and stately. The Basse Dance is the older, and flourished round about the fifteenth century, the Pavane. being at its height about tho sixteenth century. From these two dances practically all other dances, up to the intro. duction of the waltz, originated. The Tordion probably came first of all from Italy, was much sprightlier than the others with which it was contemporary, and was more in the nature of a round dance. The Brannles, another name for which is Brawl, was, according to Arbeau, a ' new dance.' It was lively, and ono of the forerunners of the country-dance. Arboau describes twenty-three ways of dancing it. The remaining two are other dances of roughly the same period.

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.
