: Scenes from: The Soul Of Nicholas Snyder

a play by Jerome K. Jerome from the Arts Theatre of London.
with Edward Stirling, Peggy Simpson, Ena Moon, Peter Copley, Arthur Burne

The Arts Theatre staged this play for the first time in England, but Edward Stirling has toured with it all over the rest of Europe and America. The play is concerned with a man who is roughly a combination of Scrooge and Faust, a miser who exchanges his soul for that of a sailor.
Edward Stirling is an actor, manager, and dramatic author who is particularly famous in Paris, where he successfully established an English company at the Theatre Albert I. He studied for the stage under the late William Mollison, and made his London debut at the Scala Theatre in 1914 in "Anna Karenina".

Tchaikovsky composed the music for "The Sleeping Beauty" in 1889, a time when it was not quite the thing for a composer of standing to turn his attention to ballet. The libretto was prepared by Vsevolojsky, the Director of Imperial Theatres, and the entire three acts were written by Tchaikovsky in a few weeks.
Oriel Ross was trained at the Royal College of Music. She made her first appearance on the stage at the Regent Theatre in "The Insect Play". Since then she has had important stage and film roles - she was Orinthia in Shaw's "The Apple Cart" at the Cambridge in 1935 - and has sung in cabaret, revue, and pantomime.

: Sophisticated Cabaret: Gwen Farrar

Originally Gwen Farrar was trained as a cellist by Herbert Walenn, and she made herself famous towards the end of the war through her partnership with Norah Blaney. The two of them appeared in "Pot Luck", "Rats", "Yes!" and "The Punchbowl", and then crossed the Atlantic to make a big hit in the United States. Two of Gwen Farrar's greatest successes were her part of Josephine in "Wonder Bar" at the Savoy, and her revue work at the Vaudeville in Chariot's "Char-a-bang".

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.
