Percy Fletcher was born in Derby. He was a clever composer of light music and was experienced in every department of the theatrical profession from the box office to the stage door. For years he was musical director of His Majesty's Theatre, conducting the remarkable run of Chu Chin Chow. Besides theatre music he produced a quantity of tuneful light music, of which this programme is a good example.

: 'THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES'

A fairy tale retold, with words and music by Henry Reed
Produced by David Porter
This, one of the best of Hans Andersen 's stories, is the one about the two rogues who pretended to weave a cloth for the emperor so marvellous in texture that the stupid and incapable would be unable to see it. They clothe him in nothing, and in nothing he rides out.
Henry Reed , who is responsible for the music and script of more and more fairy tales, has followed the story fairly closely. But he has given the two weavers names-Tweedle and Twoddle-and introduced a love, interest. Wynne Ajello , once more playing a princess, falls in love with the King's third secretary, and listeners will hear the twist she gives to the plot. This Henry Reed version is being broadcast for the first time.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
