The Story of Pantomime
Introduced by Humphrey Burton
Where does The Panto come from? Why is the Principal Boy played by a girl? Who invented the Panto Horse? Who first said ' Look out - he's behind you!'?
Tonight's film investigates the origins and development of this peculiarly English form of theatre, in the company of Ken Campbell , Chris Langham , Bob Hoskins , Andy Andrews , Eddie Davies , Duncan Faber , Dave Rappaport , Jeni Barnett and Zoe Wanamaker. Together they examine the evidence and reconstruct episodes of ' Panto through the Ages ':
A Serenade to Columbine - bawdy improvised comedy in the style of the Commedia dell'Arte.
Italian Night Scenes -first English experiments in pantomime, as pioneered by John Rich in 1717. Grimaldi Clowning - Regency slap-stick, starring the legendary Joey Grimaldi , whose comic business in the Harlequinade was the high-spot of the show.
Victorian Transformations - introducing the Principal Boy.
Enter the Dame - pantomime now invaded by music-hall stars, led by Dan Leno as Mother Goose.
Jimmy Jewel takes over as guide for this last part of the story, as he initiates his new partner Dave Hill into the mysteries of the Trick Bedroom Scene, which was created by his father in 1918, and first used in panto by Jewel and Warriss in 1940. Music written by MIKE WESTBROOK and played by his BRASS BAND Costume KEN TREW

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.
