: HAPPY AND GLORIOUS '—2

Written and produced by Malcolm Baker-Smith . Second in a series of four programmes devoted to the history of the National Anthem, based on the recent researches of Dr. Percy A. Scholes
By the end of the eighteenth century ' God Save the King ', which had been publicly performed for the first time during the Rebellion of 1743, had attained a popularity comparable with the most successful modern dance number. The City Companies played it on board their Thames barges, ladies of fashion had the words embroidered on their hats and sashes, it was the favourite of community singers in theatres throughout the country. This programme gives a picture of the England of George III , culminating with the dramatic incident of the attempted assassination of Ihe King in 1800.

: 'THE WISE FOOLS OF GOTHAM'

Play by L. du Garde Peach, produced by Howard Rose Here is an engaging variant of the legend of the Nottinghamshire village, whose inhabitants feigned a general 'idiocy in order to avoid the nightmarish possibility of the setting up in. their neighbourhood of the court of Kmg John. In this play the village has already been visited, and has incurred the wrath of the unpleasant monarch ; some of the villagers hear Shakespearean names, so that Dogberry and Gadshill dispute the merits of their beasts, and the bulldozing of the king's messengers is planned by Master Shallow.
The whole episode is set in the frame of a Brains Trust answer. and so is agreeahly begun and ended by the voice of Dr. Joad.

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.
