: A Recital

VIDA VALLANCE (contralto)
STUART WHITE (baritone)
MARY GRIERSON (pianoforte)
Reflets dans l'eau (Reflections in the Water)
CALM, barely rippled water, reflects indolently the image of all that looks down on its drowsy surface.
Le Danse de Puck (Puck's Dance)
SHAKESPEARE'S quicksilver spirit, Puck, flits swiftly across the music, tossing his airy mockery from chord to chord, playing his elfish tricks, appearing and vanishing in a flash.
La Terrasse des Audiences du Clair de la Lune (The Terrace beneath the moonlight)
AN Indian scene in the moonlight with all the restlessness I and sensuous charm of the scented Oriental night subtly suggested in one of Debussy's most ethereal and beautiful piano pieces.
Bruyeres (Heather)
AN impression of the scented undergrowth of heather-covered country in the sunlight.
La Cathedrale Engloutie (The submerged cathedral)
A BRETON LEGEND tells how the cathedral of the submerged city of Ys rises out of the waves sometimes on a clear morning when the sea is calm and transparent. The bells are heard to chime, the priests to intone, until after a while the cathedral sinks again to its enchanted age-long sleep.

LIBERTON KIRK is situated in the centre of the parish, which once stretched as far as Inveresk on the one side and to within a mile of-Dalkeith on the other. When this church was founded is not rightly known, but it is known that donations given in its favour by Macbeth were confirmed by David I. The present building was erected in 1815 and was renovated in 1931, when a new organ was installed.

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.

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.
