THE MIDLAND STUDIO
Under the direction of EDGAR MORGAN SIR HERBERT TREE, the great actor-manager who made His Majesty's Theatre famous for many years as the home of spectacular poetic drama (Shakespeare included), had a great enthusiam for the plays of Stephen Phillips. Of these he produced, in lavish style, Herod, Ulysses, Nero, and Faust. In each case he asked Samuel Coleridge-Taylor to provide the Incidental Music. From his music to Faust, written in 1908, the composer arranged an orchestral suite, consisting of The Dance of the Witches, The Four Visions, and Dance and Song from the Devil's Kitchen scene.

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.
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.
