We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
GEORGE BAKER (baritone)
Relayed from
The White Rock Pavilion, Hastings
Of all the many gifted composers of opéra comique who flourished in Paris during the nineteenth century, Offenbach was undoubtedly the most brilliant. His success as a composer of opéra comique, of which we have no exact equivalent in England, was probably unparalleled in the history of this form of entertainment.
Offenbach's industry was also astonishing, and the number of successful works which he produced in his busy life is almost incredible.
One morning in 1864, Offenbach and his two new librettists, Meilhac and Halevy, called on the celebrated Mile. Hortense Schneider and offered her the title role in a new operetta they had just completed. La belle Helene proved to be one of the biggest of all Offenbach's successes, and for the next twelve years these three were in constant and triumphant association.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
