Character8 :
Lady Caroline Lady Arabella Cinderella Nannie
Prince Charming Robin
THE time was the day tefore yesterday in Cinderella's little morning-room, a charming place with an open fire burning and the sun streaming in at long French windows. Two Ladies-in-Waiting, the Lady Arabella and the Lady Caroline, both haughty beauties, were seated before the fire, their heads bent close over an elaborate piece of embroidery which facilitates gossip.

A Little Play in Verse by Louis N. PARKER
Characters :
The Marquis
The Marchioness
The Gaoler
DURING The Terror ' in the living-room in the Gaoler's quarters in the prison of the conciergerie. There is on]y one door, and that is at the back. In an angle is a window, heavily barred inside and out. Through this the upper storeys of houses can be seen. These are lighted up now and then with a wavering glare as of passing torches. The room is but sparsely furnished. There is a rickety table with a straw-bottomed chair beside it. There are two or three other similar chairs. In one corner is a small iron stove, with a chimney which meanders deviously, and finally goes out through one of the top panes of the window. It is night. The room is lighted by a hanging-lamp with a green shade, suspended from the ceiling. On the walls are caricatures of the king, revolutionary placards, and a pleasing picture of the guillotine.

: Mr. ESCOTT NORTH, ' A Hike on the Mexican Border'

THE wild country on the borders of Mexico and the United States is as rich in romantic history as any in the world. From the days when tho Conquisladores broke up the Empire of Montezuma to the time when Billy the Kid ranged the plains, its story was one of almost incessant bloodshed-the battles of men who held life cheaply, but were apt to sell their lives very dearly when it camo to the point. Even now it is no country for weaklings-for men who cannot ride like a Rodeo crack, shoot like tho hero of a novelette, fight like a movie star, and generally live rough. Mr. Escott North is such a type, and a considerable portion of his crowded and variegated career was passed on the Mexican border, which ho knows as well as any man could.

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.
