Cesar Franck 's symphonic poem ' Les Eolides' was composed in 1876. The music is based on some lines by Leconte de Lisle, of which the following is a free translation. ' '0 breezes drifting in the skies, sweet breath of lovely spring, who with playful kisses caress the hills and plains ; 0 virgin daughters of Æolus, lovers of peace, nature wakens at your songs.'
The Triumph of Neptune
This ballet by Lord Berners is founded on a scenario by Sacheverell Sitwell and is described by the composer as an English pantomime in ten tableaux. The first scene is London Bridge where a crowd is watching a magic telescope, through which it is possible to see fairyland. Two travellers, a sailor and a journalist, decide to make a voyage of discovery, and the rest of the ballet is concerned with their adventures.

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.
