Pushkin's ' Legend of Tsar Saltan ', on which Rimsky-Korsakov based his delightful, fantastic opera, is a sort of Russian salad of ' Cinderella ' and the Perseus legend.
The absurd, pompous Tsar Saltan , kind and cruel by turns, combines the rôles of Prince Charming and of the cruel king in the old Greek story, who turns his wife and child adrift in a floating barrel.
This concert suite consists of three of the orchestral preludes to the separate acts of the opera. The quaint march-theme of the first number is a delicious musical characterisation of Saltan himself. The second piece is a seascape : the barrel drifts along with the unfortunate Tsarevna and the baby Prince. The third paints the wonders of the country in which they land ; warriors who appear out of the waves, a singing squirrel that cracks golden nuts, a Princess lovelier than the moon (whom, of course, the Prince marries).
Joseph Holbrooke , who was one of the leading figures in the rapid development of the British school of composers during the first decade of the present century, began his orchestral tone poem ' Queen Mab ' in 1902 and finished it for the Leeds Festival in 1904. It is scored for a full modern orchestra and chorus (the latter being ad libitum), and is divided into four connected sections. The first three sections are i concerned with Mercutio's description of Queen Mab : (1) ' In shape no bigger than an agate-stone on the forefinger of an alderman', etc., (2) ' and in this state she gallops night by night; through lovers' brains, and then they dream of love', etc., (3) 'Sometime she driveth o'er a soldier's neck, And dreams he of cutting foreign throats', etc.

: Farming in Scandinavia-I

JOHN MORGAN
What is happening in Denmark, and in Scandinavia generally, is becoming increasingly important to English farmers. In order fully to learn the political and commercial relations between the Scandinavian countries and our own, it is necessary to see these countries at first hand, quite apart from the fact that we have much to learn from them in farming technique and marketing methods.
With these thoughts in mind, the BBC made arrangements for Mr. John Morgan to go on a tour of Denmark, Sweden and Norway. He is now back in England and tonight will give the first of three talks in which he will describe what he has seen and heard there.

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.

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.
