' BAL MASQUE'
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.

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.

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.
