2.30 Prologue : The Red Mountain near the Tsar's capital
Prologue: The music suggests the coming of spring. The wintry Wood Spirit (tenor) goes to sleep, and the arrival of the Spring Fairy (mezzo-soprano) is followed by songs and dances of the still half-frozen birds.
But King Frost (bass) has not yet left he has waited to discuss with Spring the future of their daughter, the Snow Maiden (soprano), outwardly as fair as Spring, inwardly as cold as Winter. They decide that she shall be adopted by a couple of old peasants, Bobil and Bobilikha (tenor and mezzo-soprano).
Peasants rush in, celebrating the carnival season" and Snow Maiden is duly found and adopted.
Act 1: AH the young men are in love with Snow Maiden, but she has ears only for the songs of the Shepherd Lei (contralto). The merchant Mizgir (baritone) arrives to marry his betrothed, Kupava (soprano), but jilts her directly he sees Snow Maiden. The peasants are furious and tell Kupava to seek justice from the Tsar.

Scene : The palace of the Tsar
Act 2: Blind gusli-players sing the praises of the Tsar (tenor), who is worried by the anger of the Sun God (aroused by Snow Maiden's presence in the country). The Tsar is consulting with Bermyata (bass) when Kupava enters with her complaint. Mizgir is tried and condemned to exile-unless he can win Snow Maiden's love by the next day.

The decline, fall and rediscovery of London's oldest and most irrepressible river by Stephen Potter , based on material collected by Igor Vinogradoff
Music selected by Maurice Brown
Production by Stephen Potter
When, in the spring of last year, Stephen Potter was hunting up material for a programme about the River Tyburn he had the dramatic experience of discovering what was probably that ancient streamlet's true source.
The Tyburn spring lies cemented up underneath the basement of a Hampstead House, and the river that at one time wandered from Hampstead, via Marylebone, Hay Hill , Berkeley Square, and Buckingham Palace, to the Thames at Vauxhall Bridge Road, is lost in the network of sewers and culverts under London.
The Tyburn had a chequered history, and indeed is going through a phase of it at this very moment-for, as this programme will claim, ' the Tyburn still flows ', lost though it is.
