The story of this ballet by the celebrated Spanish playwright, Martinez Sierra , is founded on a folk-tale, the gruesome subject of which is the ghostly jealousy of a young gypsy woman's dead lover, who appears to her and her new lover whenever these two are thrown passionately together, and terrifies them into separation. Candelas, the young gypsy, attempts by various dances and other rites to exorcise the spectre, but it is not until she employs her friend, Lucia, to distract the furious ghost while Candelas is with her lover that she is enabled to get rid of him for ever.
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.
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.
