: 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 11
The music of: Fraser-Simson and James Tate Jerome Kern , Vincent Youmana
Sigmund Romberg with Billie Baker , Lucille Graham
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
Although in essence, ' Nights of Gladness ' is a nostalgic series, its audience is by no means limited to the greybeards beckoning thear fireside memories from a distant past. Most of the music played by the Concert Orchestra is familiar to all ' moderns ' who know a melody when they hear one. It is true that in this programme we glance back over, our shoulders to 1917 and to
The Maid of the Mountains: but in truth, * The Maid ' has had an almost non-stop run, and one more successful tour hat ended only recently. Sopranos and ban-tones everywhere are still telling us that ' Love will find a way ' and singing about ' A Bachelor Gay.' But from these evergreens we happily pass to Kern's Roberta and ' Smoke gets in your eyes.' We recall. too, th- slick American style of Hit the Deck with its exciting chorus, ' Halleluiahl '; and Chapter Eleven of the series ends with operetta at its most romantic-the Finale to Act 1 of Romberg's The Student Prince.

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.

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