BEATRIX MARR (violin) Relayed from The Pavilion,

Until the revolution in Russia, Glazunov's career was so straightforward and happy that it has been 'called ' A Fairy Tale set to Music '. His gifts were apparent while he was a mere child, and he had, in particular, a very remarkable memory for music. He has told. us himself that as a small boy he could always reconstruct exactly the music he had been hearing, even such big-scale works as Borodin's Prince Igor Overture. He has been an industrious composer all his life, and though much of his music follows the classical models, particularly of Brahms, more closely than the rest of the Russian school, it has, at the same time, something of the latter's strength and brilliance.
The sixth and most popular of his symphonies, although a long and elaborate work, is throughout happily melodious and easy to enjoy. There are the usual four movements, of which the first has a slow and rather mysterious introduction, hinting at the melodies on which the main quick part of the movement is made. The second is a simple melody with seven variations -a broadly conceived and. melodious movement. The third, called Intermezzo, is full of the most dainty and delicate charm, and the last, like the first, a big and imposing movement, has several easily recognised themes.
Delibes's incidental music to Le Roi s'amuse was composed for a revival of Victor Hugo 's play at the Comedie Francaise in November, 1882. In the form of a Suite, it has always been popular, though not quite rivalling Sylvia or Coppelia, the ballets which, more than anything else, won him his distinguished place as a composer of charmingly dainty and graceful music.

: 'Cable Ship'

The Breakdown Gang of the High
Seas
An Actuality Feature Programme portraying the work of cable repair ships, including records of actual sound taken on a cable ship
Devised and Produced by LAURENCE GILLIAM
This feature programme aims at depicting the life and work of a little-known section of 'Communications'. '. Two months ago, recordings were made in the cable ship Mirror as she Jay off Plymouth Sound, and at that time the whole operation of raising and repairing the cable was gone through specially, so that the exact sounds and routine of a cable ship could be reproduced in this programme. Later, the recording van paid a visit to Electra House in Moorgate, centre of a vast and complex cable organisation, where messages are received by telephone, by messenger, by teleprinter, and over the counter, for despatch in a few seconds to the ends of the earth.
' Cable Ship ' is mainly concerned with the repair work of a cable ship and the onerous duties of maintaining lines of communication intact. After giving a sound panorama of cable traffic routes, the programme will trace the despatch of a message from London. Somewhere in mid-ocean the cable is interrupted, and is diverted immediately to another route. Then listeners will hear the repair organisation coming into play : how the fault is traced and the cable ship ordered to the scene. After the characteristic equipment of a cable ship has been described, listeners will eavesdrop on the ship's bridge, as the Captain and the Chief Navigating Officer steer the ship to the point of the breakdown. Then follows the delicate and dangerous operation of raising the cable and testing the broken ends by sending messages to the shore stations, and the repair of the cable, after which it is sent back to its ocean bed.

: Terpsichore

A Ballet for Singing and Dancing
The ballet Terpsichore, which consists of a set of dances based on the theme of Love, was put together for the famous dancer Mile. ;Salle, who opened the winter season at Covent Garden in 1734. Owing to insufficient time, Handel was unable to write new music, so he selected and adapted suitable music from various old operas.
After the overture and chorus,
Apollo is heard telling Erato how he has come from Parnassus to visit his ' new Academy ' (an obvious allusion to the new Covent Garden Theatre). Terpsichore appears and illustrates in a series of dances the trials and transports of Love. Between the dances Apollo and Erato give a running commentary on Terpsichore's performance. The opening chorus is then repeated, the three divinities vanish, and the ballet comes to an end.

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.
