Albert loves the Princess; it is the dominating passion of his life. He is only an extra but he dotes on her from afar; his one brief moment on the stage he considers only important because it enables him to see her, to smile at her. Through a hoax he is enabled to meet her - but not as himself, for he is so poor that he has only his theatrical costumes to wear and they change as the plays he appears in change. Add to this diversity the caprices of the beautiful Princess and you have the ingredients for a fanciful, gay jeu d'esprit which 'could happen only in Paris.'

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
