Part 2
The origin of Pelrushka was a concert piece for piano and orchestra, in which the piano was intended to represent a I puppet, suddenly endowed with life, exasperating the orchestra with diabolical cascades of arpeggi, and the orchestra replying with. menacing fanfares.' But when Diaghilev heard Stravinsky play over some of the music he at once saw its possibilities as the basis of a ballet. The completed work was first performed in Paris in 1911, when Nijinsky appeared as Petrushka, and Karsavina as the Ballerina. A few years ago Stravinsky produced a new version of the score, with the aim of securing greater clarity in the texture; and it is this version that will be played tonight. Harold Rutland

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.
