Mr. Kasmussen has spent a great deal of his life in distant parts of the world, and wherever he has been he has managed to get some cricket, of a sort. He has tales to tell of matches on the oil fields of Los Angeles, played on cocoanut matting over hard soil; in China, and in Fiji, where the teams number two hundred a side and the matches last for weeks.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section D)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by EDWARD CLARK
Stravinsky's music to the ballet Petrushka
(1912) is perhaps the most ingenious and picturesque example of the composer's work, its pictorial suggestiveness being as vivid as the orchestral effects are masterly. The first number represents the Mid-Lent Fair with its gay crowds thronging the booths and side shows. A barrel-organ grinder and a dancer attract the attention of the crowd, and we are given a clever representation of the wheezy instruments by a tune played by three clarinets, one bass clarinet, two flutes, and one piccolo. A man with a musical box. now enters on the scene, and the two rival musicians play against each other, much to the amusement of the onlookers, who join in with a dance.
Suddenly two drummers beat a rat-a-pian outside a miniature theatre and the crowd gathers round. A Magician appears, and after making a series of strange passes with his hands, takes a flute out of his pocket and pipes a grotesque little tune. The curtain rises and wo see three puppets on the stage: Petrushka, a Moor, and a Ballerina. The Magician blows his flute three times and the puppets come to life and entertain the audience with a Russian dance.
The second number depicts Petrushka in his room. The Ballerina enters and Petrushka makes advances to her, but is repulsed because she considers him too rough and uncouth. Petrushka is plunged into despair.
The third number opens with the Moor dancing a slow and rather sensuous dance. A three-note fanfare on the cornet announces the Ballerina, who enters the room and waltzes with the Moor. They are interrupted by Petrushka's angry cries, and the Moor then attacks Petrushka.
The fourth number takes us back to the Fair.
First there is a dance of the nursemaids, then a performing bear walking on its hind legs. This diversion is followed by the appearance of a wealthy merchant with two gypsy girls. The merchant having thrown a handful of bank-notes to the crowd, plays the accordion while the girls dance. The Devil appears and urges the crowd on, and the fun grows fast and furious. Suddenly a cry is heard. Petrushka has been killed by the Moor. Petrushka's ghost appears on the roof of the theatre. The Magician drops the body, which he has been endeavouring to hide, when lie sees the apparition and runs away. Curtain.

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.
