The scenario and choreography of the ballet Don Juan was written by Gasparo Angiolini , for whom Gluck wrote all his separate ballet music. Don Juan may be considered the first modem ballet to be constructed on a dramatic basis. The story closely follows that of Mozart's Don Giovanni , and Martin Cooper , in his recent book on Gluck, points out that there arc resemblances that suggest that Mozart had studied Gluck's music to Don Juan.
In the Preface to the ballet Angiolini says that ' the music is an essential part of the pantomime : it speaks, we make gestures like the old players of Tragedy and Comedy, who confined themselves to dumb show while others recited the verses.

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
