" 2ZY " Present the Fifth Edition of the

(In Five Scenes.)
Book by Victor Smythe.

Interludes by THE "2ZY" QUARTET.
This production having been postponed four times, the entire cast having been changed twice, and the plot being emphatically noticeable by its absence, we feel sure it must be a real Revue.
(During the course of the evening we hope to give listeners some wireless impressions of Blackpool.)
SCENE 1. The Company tell of " Their Busy Day," and the Comedian endeavours to sing, but is severely reprimanded by the Production Director. Our Soprano then tells us how " June Brought the Roses " to brighten the allotment. This is followed by the Juvenile Lead, who sings
"Believe Me," which gives the entire Company, who know him only too well, "The Ukulele Blues."
We pay a visit to "The American Bar," which upsets the Soubrette so much that she sings "I Can't Make My Heart Behave." In contrast, the Juvenile Lead tells us to "Swing Along !"
As things are getting dull we open the scene brightly with "Gloom, or the Old Grey Barn," and for the survivors our Juvenile Lead will burst into song for "One Golden Hour," after which our Soubrette makes a request - "Papa, Please Make John Behave" - this request .being strongly supported by the Chorus.
SCENE 4. Our Comedienne,Having returned from her holidays and' compared notes with the 'Juvenile Lead, we learn a thing or two
"When No One's Looking," which affects the Production Director to such an extent that he sings "I'm Going to See My Girl." Immediately after his departure we take a peep into the future - "Yes ! I Don't Think!" - this being followed by a peep into the past-our Juvenile Lead telling us of "The Lost World."
SCENE 5. To open our last scene we have our Soprano beseeching our Juvenile Lead to "Give Me a Thought Now and Then," and our Comedian, assisted by the Chorus, gets worked up with "Say, Say, Sadie," and in "Buying a House," one of our ladies becomes really boisterous; but our Soprano smoothes matters with "The Song of the Mill." Our Juvenile Lead in a moment of soliloquy makes a startling confession in the "Sea Hawk," and in case other members of the Company feel inclined to soliloquise,' we induce the Quartet to conclude with "Poor Little Rich Girl."

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.
