Most countries have their own legends of the Accursed Huntsman who is condemned to ride for ever through the night as a punishment for some awful misdeed on earth. The original Wild Huntsman was Orion, but we meet him everywhere-in the North of Scotland, in Yorkshire, and in many parts of Europe. In Germany the legend is mixed up with the tale of Venus in her retreat, which Wagner uses in his opera Tannhauser. The goddess, so they tell you, is now a hideous old woman, driving for ever in a coach and pair among the rabble which follows in the Wild Huntsman's train. Children are told that if they are wicked, they will go to her when they die, and fly shrieking through the night behind her. César Franck's music is based on the German legend * of the story.
There are four scenes : the peace of Sunday morning with its joyful chants and bells pealing; the Hunt ; the Count deserted by his followers, and the dreadful voice which condemns him for his sacrilege ; and last, the terrible hunting which has no end.
The rich variety of rhythm and colour and the emotional virility of Spanish folk-music have strongly appealed to Russian and French composers. Glinka, Balakirev, Rimsky-Korsakov, Moszkowski, Lalo, Bizet, Chabrier, Debussy, and Ravel have all written one or more works either based on Spanish tunes or frankly setting out to secure the ' atmosphere ' of Spain. One of the most brilliant and attractive of these v. orks is Chabrier's rhapsody, Espana, which has done more to make his name known outside France than any of his other works. It is interesting to note that Waldteufel wrote a set of waltzes upon the principal themes.

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.
