: 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 12
The music of: Paul Rubens , Noel Coward Vivian Ellis , Sidney Jones with Billie Baker , Lucille Graham
Bruce Trent , Dudley Rolph
Jan van der Gucht
BBC Chorus

Conductor, Gilbert Vinter
Produced by Michael North
The First-Nighter— with Eric Maschwitz to jog his memory-is is still winning new friends with his light-hearted survey of musical comedy and operetta. Deliberately, he has made no attempt to adhere to chronological order, but has dipped at random into the wealth of melody at his disposal. This week, for example (in an all-British programme), we are taken back to the golden days of Daly's Theatre to hear the lilting melodies of ' The Geisha.' Sidney Jones enchatved us with his delightful score more than fifty years ago. but ' The Geisha '— like ' Miss Hook of Holland' (Paul Rubens) — is still a favourite, and was enjoying a major revival in the 1930s. But to bring ' N ights of Gladness ' up to dare, there is a memory. too, of Noel Coward's ' Private Lives,' and the Concert Orchestra also reminds us of the late Sir Charles Cochran's production of ' Big Ben,' with its music by Vivian EHis.

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
