THE Phantasy,' The Three Bears, is a musical presentation of the well-known tale about the little girl who nearly got into the clutches of these creatures. We have no difficulty in interpreting the motif heard at the start—‘ Who's been sitting in my chair ? ' Goldilocks gets up (at five o'clock, as we hear), and runs off to the bears' house. Finding it empty, she peeps about and nmuses herself awhile, then falls asleep. Tho bears arrive (Oboe, the little bear, Clarinet. the second one, and Bassoon tho big bear), and chaso her away. Goldilocks runs home to granny and tells her of the exciting adventure.
EVER since their mysterious introduction to the listening world at the beginning of May,

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
