(Section C)
THE DISTINGUISHED French actor and playwright Sacha Guitry, probably better known to London audiences than any of his living stage compatriots, wrote a play depicting an episode in the life of Mozart. The part of the youthful Mozart was charmingly played by Guitry's wife, Yvonne Printemps, and the incidental music was composed by Reynaldo Hahn. Mozart has been played in London by Sacha Guitry and Yvonne Printemps on more than one of their visits.
ANDRÉ MESSAGER, who died five years ago at the good old age of seventy-six, was for long a familiar figure in the London musical world, apart from the successful productions here of some of his best light operas. We remember his Little Michus and Véronique ; and his ballet The Tzco Pigeons is often heard as orchestral music. But besides composing, he did distinguished work as conductor, too, not only in Paris, but in London. For some six years he was Artistic Director at Covent Garden Opera House, conducting many of the important operas. Monsieur Beaucaire, the last of his operas heard in London, began a run at Prince's Theatre in the spring of 1919, with Maggie Teyte as prima-donna.


Unknown: Laurance Turner

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.
