For many years the late Norman O'Neill was musical director at the Haymarket Theatre. Among his best incidental music written for the Haymarket productions was the music to Maeterlinck's The Blue Bird and Sir James Barrie's Mary Rose. The four dances from The Blue Bird now performed as a concert suite have attained wide popularity. The first is the ' Dance of the Mist
Maids '. The mist shuts out the Land of Memory, and through it the children, Tyltyl and Myltyl, find their way. The second is a ' Dance of Fire and Water ' in which Fire and Water fight for supremacy. The third is the' Dance of the Stars ' in the Palace of Night. Lastly comes the ' Dance of the Hours '. The Hours come out of the grandfather clock when Tyltyl turns the magic stone.
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.
