Variations from the 'Trout' Quintet .. Schubert
A Fantasy in One Act by OLIPHANT DOWN
The setting for ' Bal Masqué ' is a balcony that looks out on to the river at Chelsea, Curtains conceal it from the ballrcom within: it is about 3.0 a.m. on a fine June morning, and the dancing is stilt in progress. A girl in a black domino appears through the curtains at. tho back ; she pauses and glances over her shoulder. Then. after letting the curtains fall, she advances on to the balcony, sinks into a chair, and, with studied artlessness, pretends to be asleep. A White Pierrot enters ... he gazes at the sleeper ... with a Well-simulated start, she awakes.


A White Pierrot: William Armstrong
A Girl in a Black Domino: Catherine Scales

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.
