AT twenty-eight, when he wrote this Overture,
Sullivan had already achieved a fine command both of the Orchestra and of that knack of writing gay tunes that has so endeared him to us all. He wrote few pieces more spirited than this, even in the Comic Operas-and that is saying a good deal.
A Play by EDWIN LEWIS
Presented by STUART VINDEN
It is a quiet summer night. Beside tho road, on a green patch, a travelling van is drawn up under the shelter of the trees, and a log fire burns, filling the air with the stimulating aroma of the pine. Marie sits on the lowest step of the van with hands clasped behind her back. Her lips are parted in smiling wonder as she gazes at Carl, who, clad in a velvet jacket, is playing the violin.

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.
