Here is a programme of well-contrasted dances characteristic of the many countries from which they come. In no case do these pieces belong to what we know today as dance music, though a number of them were written for stage dancing in set ballets. Of these the most notable are the ones by Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky, and Ponchielli. Others were written for concert performance, though that does not detract from their rhythmic adaptability to actual dancing. The number by Berlioz is in both categories; only this year it was danced to on the stage of Covont Garden Theatre in the performances of Belioz's The Damnation of Faust, yet as a concert piece it is better known than almost any other dance in this programme.
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.
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.
