: I DO! I DO!

starring
IAN CARMICHAEL and ANNE ROGERS in scenes from Act 1 of the new musical
From the stage of the Lyric Theatre, London, by arrangement with H. M. Tennent Ltd.
Book and lyrics by TOM JONES
Music by HARVEY SCHMIDT
Based on The Fourposter by JAN DE HARTOG
Musical direction by IAN MACPHERSON Orchestration by Philip J. Lang Directed by GOWER CHAMPION r Directed for television by MARY EVANS
The story of the play covers fifty years of a marriage which begins just before the turn of the century. We see the ups and downs of Agnes and Michael's life together-their wedding day, their honeymoon, their first child, his first indiscretion, their estrangement, and reconciliation. The songs, the best known of which is probably' My cup runneth over,' tunefully punctuate the play's action.
Ian Carmichael , who plays
Michael, has sung on stage several times before-it was in the Lyric and Globe Revues that he scored his first great success. And Anne Rogers played the lead in the immensely successful stage musical The Boy Friend for three-and-a-half years, and later took over from Julie Andrews for another long run in My Fair Lady.

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, and programmes to purchase.

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.
