or The Sailor's Return
A Dramatic Pastoral composed by Dr. Arne
Arne's sister, Susanna Maria, became famous as Mrs. Cibber, one of the greatest tragic actresses of the day. It was for her that he reset Addison's opera Rosamond, produced at Lincoln's Inn Fields Theatre in 1773. This was the forerunner of many important compositions for the stage, one of which was Thomas and Sally. It was first performed in London in 1760.

A Little Show
with Kitty Reidy
Hugh French
Dennis Van Thal
Bobby Probst
As well as the first television appearance of Hugh French and Bobby Probst, this show presents two celebrities in the shape of Kitty Reidy and Dennis Van Thal.
Van Thal is now Andre Chariot's partner in "Star and Stripes" at the Vaudeville - his first venture into management. He wrote music for "Hi-Diddle-Diddle", "Char-a-Bang", and "Shall we Reverse?", and with Nat Ayer jun, he was responsible for the music in "Stars and Stripes". Originally, he was a solo pianist.
Kitty Reidy comes from Australia. Theatre-goers will remember her debut on the London stage in 1926 as Nina in "Wildflower" at the Shaftesbury Theatre. Since then, she has won her way to the hearts of pantomime lovers all over the country. She has been principal boy or principal girl in almost every panto in the repertoire, including "The Sleeping Beauty", "Puss in Boots", "Robinson Crusoe", "Cinderella", "Mother Goose", and "The Forty Thieves".

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
