in 'The Silver Patrol'
A Romantic Musical Drama
Book and Lyrics by BRUCE SIEVIER
Music by PAT THAYER
Special Orchestrations by WALLY WALLOND
Adaptation and Production by CHARLES
BREWER
The Cast and Albert Stamp , his Valet JAY LAURIER
THE WIRELESS CHORUS (Section C) and THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA,
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
The Prologue is set in a London Hotel, after which the scene changes variously from the s.s. Aurora to Government House, Perada-Dream Valley Ranch-and the mountains of Southern Pinelands.
This romantic musical drama was originally written with a view to talking films in the days when they had just started, but facilities were not then available for tackling such an ambitious script. Times have changed, and tonight-and tomorrow in the Regional programme--one or two big firms will be listening with interest.
The story is real full-blooded ' he-man ' stuff with plenty of movement, its principal setting the Southern Pinelands-a place where men are men and girls are capable of looking after themselves, even when faced with the type of ' tough guy ' that abounds.
Jaquita Jackson , tenant of the Dream
Valley Ranch-our heroine-is played by the popular broadcast star, Marjery Wyn , and Lord Rayson, our hero, by Frank Drew , who will be remembered for his broadcast of a leading part in Good-night, Vienna.
Drama must have its comedy relief, which in this instance is in the more than capable hands of Jay Laurier. Tessa Deane , of Derby Day fame, plays the part of a woman whose heart rules her head.
But the central figure round whom the plot turns is the Governor of the Southern Pinelands, Michael O'Hegan -a resolute and magnetic personality. For such a romantic rôle no better player could be found than Harry Welchman.

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.
