: Music by THE

: The City Police Band at Play

(By kind permission of the Watch Committee and the Chief Constable, Mr. Lionel D. L. Everitt, O.B.E.)
Conductor : Chief Inspector Charles R. Bicks, Bandmaster
'MISS LUCY LONG' - our domestic help - slumbers; it is time to rise, however, and efforts are made to induce her to do so. She yawns, and (Allegretto) gets up. She is heard coming downstairs, where she proclaims herself loudly (Moderato). The next movement 'Lucy' is discovered at her work ; and while she works, she sings her favourite melodies in her own particular style. Becoming more than usually frivolous, she indulges in some eccentricities which bring about an appalling disaster to the crockery! The Adagio, which follows, depicts her remorse ; she soon recovers her spirits, however, and tells all and sundry that 'Charlie is my darling.' We next meet her on Hampstead Heath: it is Bank Holiday, and 'Lucy' enjoys the fun - and a waltz. Later, they drop into 'ragtime.' Now we are interested listeners to a bit of love-making between ' Charlie ' (Trombone) and 'Lucy' (Bassoon), and after a suggestion of ' Haste to the Wedding,' 'Lucy ' pets married, and will have the Wedding March-in 'ragtime,' too!
'THE Church Clock Strikes Four '; 'A Hunting We Will Go'; 'John Peel,' and some
of his eccentricities. He attends the Hunt Dinner, and will sing 'Drinking': after this, he is very sad and only recovers with the aid of a spirited Cake-Walk.

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.
