Schumann describes his ' Carnaval ' as a Masked Ball' and actually it is a senes of sketches so cleverly illustrating Passing incidents in a ballroom that to "iterpret it in terms of dance and gesture and to put it on the stage was '"evitable.
Consequently, when Diaghilev's Russian Ballet produced their lovely version of ' Carnaval' in London, which is now one of the most popular items in the repertoire of ballet, it was seen how Perfect a ballet it made, and how brilliant and subtle an example of programme music the music was. As P'ano music ' Carnaval' is one of the outstanding achievements of the romantic period and can be placed alongside Chopin's music for perfection of keyboard style and beauty of effect.

The South-West Corner-3
' The Cornish Mines'
A. K. HAMILTON JENKIN
This morning, in the third and last talk by Mr. Hamilton Jenkin in this series, he will speak of the people of Cornwall in ancient times, and of what they have left behind.
There is-no part of Britain richer in prehistoric remains. Stone circles, cromlechs; among them the famous Lanyon dolmen near Mr. Jenkin's home town of St. Ives. In this district also are the stream beds around the famous Ding-Dong mine, that must have been worked 2,000 years ago.
Mr. Jenkin will speak of Cornish legends, and he knows them as well as you know the way to school. He will discuss ancient mines and mine-workers, and tell you how Cornwall, which once almost supplied the world with tin and copper, has still got its working mines. He will say something of the granite quarries, and of the important industry of china clay with its great white glittering waste-dumps which you see from the train whilst passing'through central Cornwall.

' Rubber '—2
J. W. F. Rows
This evening Mr. J. W. F. Rowe is to continue his lectures on rubber, which he began last week. He will discuss the effects of unrestricted production around 1930 (listeners will remember that the British Restriction Scheme came to an end in 1928) and the effects of low prices on the different kinds of producer. He will say something about the general features that govern the amount produced at different price levels. He will touch on the problems of the Dutch native. And finally will look into the International Restriction Scheme : its desirability and its chances of success.

: THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA

(Section E)
Led by LAURANCE TURNER
Conducted by MALCOLM SARGENT
Iolanthe was the seventh of the Savoy series of operas in order of production, and followed immediately upon thsuccessful run of Patience, of which over 400 performances had been given
Indeed, all the Gilbert and Sullivan operas had phenomenally long runs, Iolanthe, for example, holding the Savoy stage for more than a year. Sullivan by this time was already a very popular public figure. He had been for three years Director of the newly-founded Royal College of Music, he had recently succeeded Costa as conductor of Leeds Festival, and within a few months front the beginning of the Iolanthe run he was to be knighted.
Suite, La Boutique Fantasque (The
Fantastic Toyshop) :
Rossini and Respighi
One of the foremost present-day Italian composers, Respighi was first made known to us in this country, by the music for this ballet. The tunes are taken from some of the light pieces, chiefly written for pianoforte, which Rossini composed in his last years, after he had practically retired from the operatic world, and Respighi had arranged them to make a delightfully fresh and dainty ballet.
Irish Tune from County Derry
Grainger
Percy Grainger was born at Brighton, near Melbourne in Australia, just over fifty years ago. He gave pianoforte recitals as a boy and accumulated enough money to travel to Germany and study there. His British colleagues in Germany included Balfour Gardiner , Norman O'Neill , Cyril Scott , and Roger Quilter. In 1900 he came to London and became known to the British public as a pianist of great brilliance.
Suite, Casse Noisette (Nut-Cracker)
Tchaikovsky
I. Miniature Overture; 2. Characteristic Dances; (1) March; (2) Dance of the Sugar-plum Fairy; (3) Russian Dance, Trepak; (4) Arabian Dance; (5) Chinese Dance; (6) Reed-pipe Dance ; 3. Waltz of the Flowers
Tchaikovsky's 'Caste Noisette' (Nutcracker) Suite contains some of the daintiest ballet music ever written. The whole work is, of course, much longer than the Suite, which contains only some of the best numbers, and lasts for a considerable time when presented on the stage.
The story of the ballet is taken from
E. T. A. Hoffmann's fantastic fairy-tale ' Nutcracker and Mouse-King ' -this Hoffmann being the Hoffmann of Offenbach's opera-and is of a type that seems very much to appeal to Russian artists and audiences.
The complete ballet was first produced in St. Petersburg in 1892, and the Suite was introduced to EnglanJ by Sir Henry Wood at a Promenade Concert in 1896. From its first performance it has been one of the most popular pieces of music in the repertory.

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.
