Paris.-1810.
A LTHOUGH Blanche-Mario and Mario-Blanche
(the two little Michus) have been brought up as sisters, one of them is, in reality, Irene, Des Ifs, the daughter of General Des Ifs , the ' victor ' of Saragossa. Unfortunately, Pierre Michu and his wife are unable to distinguish between their own child and the General's, and their efforts to restore t* the General his long-lost child cause many ridiculous complications, not only in the household, but in the hearts of the two girls, for, surprised as they are to find that they are not really sisters, it is an even greater surprise to find that the General has betrothed his daughter. Irene, to one of his officers. As both the girls are in love, there are obviously many amusing incidents. One of the chief conspirators in this delightful family " mix-up is Bagnolet who, with the General, is responsible for most of the fun.
The play was produced in England at Dalv'.t Theatre on April 29, 1905, when it ran for 401 performances, and brought fame to Miss Mabel Green , as Marie-Blanche, which part she is again playing to-night. Other members of the cast who are taking their original rôles are Miss Vera Beringer , Mr. Ambrose Manning and Mr. George Graves.

ALMOST the whole delightful output of more than the first two centuries of keyboard music was written for the Harpsichord and tho Clavichord-for there were no Pianos then.
Most of Mozart's music was written for the Harpsichord, and all of it is conceived in terms of that instrument rather than of the Piano.

THE BRUSSELS STRING QUARTET
DESIRE DEFAUW (First Violin) ; BORIS PECKER ; JAMESLOCKYER (Viola); EMILE DOEHAERD (Violoncello)
Moderato semplico ; Menuetto e trio ; Andantino con moto ; Adagio Allegro
(First Performance)
THE members of the Brussels String Quartet are well known already as Soloists, and most of them have been playing together in various Chamber Music combinations since the War. M. Desire Defauw , the Leader, is Director of Concerts at the Conservatoire in the city from which the Quartet takes its name. On the Quartet's reappearance some few months ago, the members' playing was very warmly commended for its fine tone and admirable
"team" spirit.
THEY are playing first a new work, still in manuscript, written two years ago by a woman composer who, in spite of her name, is Welsh.
Mrs. Marillier has composed also some songs, which have been sung by John Coates , and a Light Opera. She does not adopt an ' ultra modern ' idiom in this work ; as she puts it. she finds very ' 'advanced' harmonies useful when she wants to suggest vagueness and indecision, but for the expression of the moods of this Quartet she turns to tho idiom of the Composers who are beloved as the founders of Chamber Music-Mozart and Haydn. That does not mean that she imitates them, but that she has tried to bring out in her music the qualities of melodiousness and freshness that gives us such enjoyment in the older masters' works.
The Quartet is in four Movements. The First moves at a moderate pace ; tho Second, following the ' classical ' is a Minuet; the third, the Slow Movement, has two portions, in varying speeds ; and the Fourth isenergetic, gay and exhilarating.

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.
