: Characteristic Dances

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section E)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
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.

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.
