: NIGHTS OF GLADNESS

A tribute to composers whose melodies in the past twenty-five years have enriched the world of musical comedy and operetta
Introduced by Eric Maschwitz and ' The First-Nighter '
Written by Gale Pedrick
Chapter 9
The music of: Edward German ,Lionel Monckton Rudolf Friml , Montague Phillips with Lucille Graham. Billie Baker
Bruce Trent , Dudley Rolph
Jan van der Gucht
BBC Chorus
(Chorus-Master, Leslie Woodgate )
BBC Concert Orchestra
(Leader, John Sharpe )
Conductor, Gilbert Vinter
Produced by Michael North
We are inclined to talk airily about the evergreen quality of the theatre music which has enlivened the British theatre in the past fifty years or so. The 'Nights of Gladness' series has proved quite overwhelmingly that this applies to a great many more musical comedies (and ' plays with music ') chan we suspected. The First-Nighter and his knowledgeable friend, Eric Maschwitz, have already discussed (with melodious illustrations) the work of leading British composers, and have talked about many productions which, while originating on the Continent or in America, became ' best-sellers ' when played in the West End with British companies. This week we evoke memories of shows that have been revived again and again and which, like Sir Edward German's ' Merrie England' and Montague Phillips' ' The Rebel Maid,' seem to have acquired a dignified and permanent place in entertainment. We shall hear, too, the familiar melodies of ' The Quaker Girl '— happy shades of Gertie Millar and Joe Coyneand ' The Vagabond King,' in which Derek Oldham sang as Francois Villon. G. P.

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.
