' Baba Yaga ' is one of the most striking figures of Russian folk-lore. She is a witch, iron-toothed and terrible in appearance, but extremely stupid. (In the old stories her schemes are nearly always foiled.) She lives in a hut mounted on fowls' legs a hut without doors or windows, which is described in some of the stories as spinning like a top or flying about.
Baba Yaga, like most witches, is much addicted to nocturnal aviation-either alone or in her hut-and her flight has been musically depicted by several Russian composers : Dargomijsky, Mussorgsky, and Liadov among others.

: A Pianoforte Recital by MAURICE COLE

Schumann's Fantasy was composed in 1836 and dedicated to Liszt. The music bears the following motto from
Schlegel: 'Through all the tones in Earth's many-coloured dream there sounds one soft long-drawn note for the secret listener.' But its poetic basis is rather more explicitly described by Schumann himself in a letter to Clara Wieck , who later became his wife : ' I have finished a Fantasie in three movements, which I sketched down to the details in June, 1836. I do not think
I ever wrote anything more impassioned , than the first movement; it is a profound lament about you.'

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
