Books, lyrics, and music by Edward Cooper
The Dance Orchestra, directed by Billy Tement
Produced by Reginald Smith
Edward Cooper, who also wrote the book, lyrics, and music of the first instalment of ' Family Racket' broadcast on November 4, has made a name for himself in cabaret and musical comedy, especially for his songs at the piano. He writes most of his own songs, and most listeners have laughed at one time or another over lines such as ' I was one of the beaux at Harrogate, when Bath was only a sink '. Noel Coward's song ' Don't put your daughter on the stage, Mrs. Worthington ' was written specially for Cooper.

: BBC ORCHESTRA

(Section A)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conductor, Sir Adrian Boult
The title of ' Images' was one of which Debussy was rather fond. It well expresses the slightly pictorial nature of his music and emphasises its affinity with the Whistler paintings and Japanese colour-prints that he loved. He wrote three sets of ' Images the first two for piano, and the third for orchestra.
Iberia, the second of the orchestral
' Images', ', is in three distinct movements, though the second passes without a break into the third: ' In highways and byways ', 'Perfumes of the night', and Festival morning '. This piece alone should kill the idea, if it survives, that Debussy was a master only of half-lights, haze, and colour effects of shot-silk. The whole piece glows with warmth and light and exuberant vitality.

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.
