Cris du Monde (The Cries of the World), is
Arthur Honegger s biggest essay in musical pictorialism. It is a setting of a poem by Rene Bizet , the argument of which runs as follows : ' Driven by the desire to gain true knowledge of himself, man craves for solitude and silence, relief from the myriad cries of the world.
' But, from day to day, restlessness of earth forbids him a moment's meditation.
' When he wakes, he strives in vain to fashion the song of himself; the noise of the factories, the cries of his brothers in distress, the calls of workmen, and the shouts of warriors in defence of their country; the entreaties of the sea, and the mountains, the voices of space, the invitations of unknown cities-each and all prevent him from expressing that which lies in the depths of his being.
' Night itself, which should bring peace to heaven and earth, is filled afresh with new sounds, new cries, as clamorous and as urgent as those of the day about to dawn.
' And so his captive voice is ever silent'.
(An article on this work appears on page 805.)

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.
