(Sheridan)
Act I, Scene 2 (omitting from the entry of Julia to the entry of Mrs. Malaprop)
Act III, Scene 3
Act IV. Scene 2
Act V. Scene I (from the entry of Lydia and Maid)
THE wittiest play of one of the wittiest men who ever wrote tor the English stage, The Rivals was first produced at Covent Garden in January, 1775. It was Sheridan's first play, and it failed. Four years later, when he was manager of the Drury Lane, he put it on again, with better success. It has now passed into the repertory of stage classics, and one of the most notable revivals took place at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, a few years ago. With its romantic young lady and her very practical lover, and so famous a trio of characters as Mrs. Malaprop, Bob Acres, and Sir Lucius O'Trigger (one of the few stage Irishmen really credibly drawn), and its humour culminating in the unforgettable duel scene, The Rival8 is a comedy of manners that will always appeal to anybody who can appreciate either humour or wit.

: ' How to Enjoy the Countryside '

THE railways and the highways stretch their network all over the country, but the countryside itself eludes them. To get to grips with it, one must leave the traffic routes and walk. That is what the rambler does. He may have some particular interest-in flowers or birds or trees, agriculture or antiquities-or he may merely enjoy walking around the country in congenial company. This talk will explain the aims and methods of the Rambling Clubs, with special reference to the Countryside and Footpaths Preservation Conference, which opens at Leicester next week.

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

SCHUBERT'S PIANOFORTE DUETS
Played by ISOBEL GRAY and CLAUDE POLLARD

: Dr. E. S. WATERHOUSE: Some Ideas and Ideals of the World's Religions-II, The Psychology of Ritual and Belief '

IN the second talk of his series. Dr. Waterhouse considers how the introduction of psychology can help towards a clearer understanding of religion.

: Charming Chloe

The
Story Chloe Vane gets bored with her convent-school at Marseilles, and when you come to think of it, what Operatic heroine wouldn't ? A maid of infinite resource, moreover, she disguises herself as a cabin-boy on the good ship Mermaid in order to reach England.
This merry and amusing libretto is wedded to a very charming ' score.' Much of the music is traditional, in using which, Mr. Gerrard Williams follows the lead of Gay, Dibden and other past masters, as well as several moderns. Altogether, an engagingly light-hearted affair.

: Mr. NOEL COWARD will make a last appearance at the microphone before leaving for America

PLAYWRIGHT, revue writer, lyricist, composer, actor and almost everything else, Mr. Noel Coward can safely be called the most, brilliant young man that the postwar generation has produced in England. Ho is very soon to go to America to take charge of the New York production of This Year of Grace, the revue now running at tho London Pavilion, of which he wrote the book, the lyrics and the music, in which he will act in New York.
Tonight's broadcast is, therefore, a farewell appearance on this side.

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.
