: Babes in the Wood

An excerpt from Randolph Sutton's production
Cast includes:
The Farrell Girls.
Orchestra under the direction of Jack Weston
From the Theatre Royal, Bristol
Compere, Harry S. Pepper
Never before has a pantomime been broadcast in the history of the Theatre Royal, Bristol-built in 1766, its interior just as it was in Garrick's time. The audience is small, but the acoustics are perfect. No singer here has to plead with the audience to join in a chorus-song-they are too enthusiastic, especially when the singer is the star of this particular pantomime, Randolph Sutton (Will Scarlett), a native and favourite of Bristol.
Comedy is the key-note of the show. In Miffins (Harry Vardon) Bristol has a comic after its own heart. His small plump figure, with his North Country burr, makes an ideal partner for the dame, Martha Twitchett (Sonny Jenks). She is as thin and nearly as tall as a lamppost; and Sonny twists his spindly arms and legs about as though they were the tentacles of an octopus, sings in tones ranging from bass to falsetto, and wears an assortment of fantastic costumes that bring the house down directly he makes his entrances. The villainous Baron Porky ('Hullo, customers - hullo, Porky!') is admirably played by Duggie Steward.
Among the numbers that listeners will hear will be 'Angels never leave Heaven' sung by Lou Vane and Alma Sheen (Robin Hood and Maid Marion); ' Devonshire home sung by Randolph Sutton and Sonny Jenks; 'Goodbye Sally', sung by Lou Vane (its composer, Arthur Riscoe, will be heard singing it on Monday from the Prince's, London); and 'Roll out the barrel', sung by Randolph Sutton.

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.
