Lucy Scollick (pianoforte) Vladimir Rebikov (1866-1920), one of the lesser Russian composers, wrote a number of charming little pieces, among which is the set of five, ' Les Rêves', which he calls ' Melomimiques '. Rebikov describes melomiming as ' a scenic art in which mimicry and instrumental music mingle in one indivisible whole. It differs from the ballet because the dance plays no part in it, and from pantomime pure and simple because in that music plays a part at least equal to that of mimicry. The region of mimicry begins where the word ceases and feeling reigns alone.'
' Naiade ' : The fisherman sleeps in his boat and dreams that a naiad sings him a song. ' Les Demons s'amusent': The demons sit motionless and silent, and amuse themselves watching Satan's daughter dance. 'La Nereide': By the sea the nereid is playing the harp in the moonlight. A triton comes out of the water and listens in silence.
In the distance a ship passes silently, leaving a silver trail on the sleeping waters. ' Dans la foret ' : The nymphs are dancing in the moonlight and only the rhythmic fall of their feet resounds in the sleeping forest.

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.
