or The School for Fathers by Isaac Bickerstaffe adapted for broadcasting by Raymond Raikes with music by CHARLES DIBDIN orchestrated and edited by Roger Fiske
In this radio production of a play first produced at Covent Garden in 1768 and revived at Drury Lane in 1770. the Italian airs of the period, which were interpolated, have been omitted, so that we are left with an 18th-century English ' musical.' Listeners may be interested to know that two members of the radio cast, Peter Pratt and Marion Grimaldi. will also be appearing in ' Lionel and Clarissa ' from June 22 at the newly opened Yvonne Arnaud Theatre at Guildford.
The action takes place in the houses of Colonel Oldboy and Sir John Flowerdale, neighbours in the country: summer of the year 1767.
LONDON CHAMBER ORCHESTRA Leader, Lionel Bentley
Conducted by ERIC WETHERELL

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.
