I The Dubarry

Synopsis

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.
Music by CARL MILLÖCKER Lyrics by ROWLAND LEIGH English libretto by ERIC MASCHWITZ
Radio version by ALASTAIR SCOTT JOHNSTON
Introduced by John Palmer
The death of Mme de Pompadour in 1764 left the position of Royal Favourite to King Louis XV embarrassingly vacant. The rise of the cidevant Jeanne Becu from a Paris milliner's sweatshop through an aristocratic marriage to becoming. literally. the Mistress of Versailles. has all the fascination of the Cinderella story. After all, it is a Cinderella story
BBC CHORUS
BBC CONCERT ORCHESTRA leader ARTHUR LEAVINS conducted by VILEM TAUSKY Produced by ALASTAIR SCOTT JOHNSTON and DAVID RAYVERN ALI.EN

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.
