: 'STAR-GAZING'— No. 11

The radiobiography of GEORGE GRAVES
The life story of one of the leading comedians of the English musical-comedy stage with George Graves in person and John Watt as compere
The BBC Revue Chorus and the BBC Variety Orchestra, conducted by Charles Shadwell
Script by Leslie Baily and Howard Thomas. Production by Ronald Waldman
In this, the tenth ' Star-Gazing ' programme, listeners are to have a telcscopic view, with voice and music, of the long, varied, and amazingly successful career of a great English comedian. George Graves made his first big hit as General Marchmont in The School Girl in 1903. But it was as Baron Poport in The Merry Widow that he became known for all time. The ridiculous appearance he assumed, with that bibulous bulbous nose, his ridiculous voice and quips, always brought down the house with laughter.
Listeners are to hear George Graves in excerpts from songs he sang in The Geisha, l'éronique, The Little Michus , The Merry Widow, The Belle of Brittany, Watch Your Step, The Blue Mazurka, Me and My Girl, and many pantomimes. From The Geisha, which he played in in Russia, to Me and My Girl, still running—who has trodden a longer path more successfully in the history of the theatre ?

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
