: THE BBC MIDLAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by HAROLD GRAY
The story of Daudet's play relates how a young Provencal farmer is torn between a passion for a dancer of Aries, a neighbouring town, and his repulsion against what he realises has been her life in the past. He cannot forget her, nor can he overlook her unworthiness, and takes his own life as a way out of his tragic dilemma. The Prelude epitomises the dramatic elements of the play ; the Minuet is a solo for flute with harp accompaniment ; the Adagictto, for muted strings only, accompanies, in the play, the meeting of the hero's mother and her former lover whom she has not seen for fifty years.
' The Flight of the Bumble Bee' is taken from Rimsky-Korsakov's opera, The Legend of Tsar Sultan. It illustrates the flight of the mythical bumble bee, and is a brilliant solo for the flute with the slightest of accompaniments, a particularly happy example of Rimsky-Korsakov's whimsical manner.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
