The Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Koussevitzky: Suite, Petrushka (Stravinsky)
Paris Symphony Orchestra conducted by Selmar Meyrowitz , solo pianoforte, Kilenvi: Totentanz (Dance of Death) (Liszt)
Orchestre de la Societe du Conservatoire conducted by Piero Coppola: La Peri (Dukas)
It is a curious fact that Dukas is well known in England on the strength of one work, namely ' L'apprenti sorcier', which is one of the most popular works in our orchestral repertoire. Another symphonic poem ' La Peri ', which was recently revived at the Proms, is like L'apprenti ', based on a rather elaborate programme.
The story that the music sets out to illustrate is roughly as follows. Sages observed that the star of King Iskender was growing pale, and sent him off to search for the flower of Immortality. In his search he came even to the end of the world, where it merges into the sea and the clouds, and there a Peri fay asleep with the flower held in her hand. Iskender took it from her tenderly, but she woke, and while he looked on her and saw that her face surpassed all the beauty that he had known till then, she danced for him, and at last he gave her back the flower. In his hand it had turned to purple, but in hers it became again white and gold like snow with the sun on it. At last her form grew fainter and fainter until nothing could be seen but the hand which held the flower, now shining like a flame, and even that, too, disappeared. Iskender knew that it meant the coming of his own end, and felt the darkness gather round him.
The music is so full of changes of rhythm and tonality that the tale which it i!lustrates is no doubt a much better clue to it than any formal analysis.

: AN HOUR TO PLAY

An hour of popular melodies and novelties played by Harry Roy and his Band with BILL CURRIE
RAY ELLINGTON
For the first time an English band has been booked for the Argentine, and in April Harry Roy is to set sail to conquer new territory and new air, for while he is out there he will be broadcasting to the Argentine public every day. His wife, Princess Pearl, will accompany him, and every member of the band goes too, as well as the girl vocalist he has found it so hard to find. It will be a great moment for her, for no girl vocalist has ever sung with Harry Roy 's band. He recently finished making his new film Rhythm Racketeer, in which Princess Pearl co-stars. It is to be released in March. He hopes to be back from South America in August to fulfil his stage engagements once more. In 1939 and 1940 he plans to tour France, Holland, South Africa, Australia, and all parts of the world

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.
