: 'MALABAR-JONES'

A radio play by Ian A. Evans
Can :
Scene: The Cosmopolitan Palace
Hotel, London
Time: The present
Produced by John Cheatle
Malabar-Jones is a man of ideas, and it seems to him there are no ideas at all in the dated and half-empty Cosmopolitan Palace Hotel, which he is engaged to manage. He must change all that. And in no time he converts the fusty billiards room into an up-to-date lounge, turns the top floor into a poultry yard, and the roof garden into allotments ; by which it will be gathered that this radio play might be termed that most amusing thing of all-farce.

: DEBUSSY'S IMAGES

1 Ronde de printemps ; 2 Gigues ;
3 Iberia played by BBC Orchestra (Section A)
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Leslie Heward
Debussy was rather fond of the title 'Images', which he gave to three sets of pieces. The title well expresses the slightly pictorial nature of his music and emphasises its affinity with the Whistler paintings and Japanese colour-prints that he loved.
The three pieces forming the orchestral ' Images ' appeared separately during the years 1910-1913. In Ronde de printemps' Debussy introduces folk melodies of his own native land. ' Gigues ', originally called ' Gigues tristes ', is an impression of England with suggestions of an English country-dance tune and an English military band.
Iberia ', an impression of Spain, is in three distinct movements-' In Highways and Byways ', ' Perfumes of the Night ', and ' Festival Morning '. It 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.
