: 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 13
The music of: Ivan Caryll and Lionel Monekton
Jack Strachey
Andre Messager
Franz Lehar with Billie Baker , Lucille Graham
Bruce Trent , Dudley Rolph

BBC Chorus
(Chorus-Master, Leslie Woodgate )
BBC Concert Orchestra
(Leader, John Sharpe )
Conductor, Gilbert Vinter
Produced by Michael North
At one period, the Edwardian dramatists and the writers of libretti found it hard to resist the charms of the bewitching little shop-girl heroine. Among the most popular of these delightful creatures was Our Miss Gibbs,' who was brought to life so captivatingly by Gertie Millar and who sang so merrily, ' I'm such a silly when the moon comes out.' Caryll and Monekton open this week's programme as we recall one of Daly's pre-first war successes. Messager, whose * Monsieur Bsaucaire ' has already featured in ' Nights of Gladness,' is represented by ' Veronique ' and we are reminded again, this time with his ' Gypsy Love,' that Lehar is a giant in this field of entertainment. To strike a more modern note, the programme pays tribute to Jack Strachey , whose score of ' Spread It Abroad ' leaves us a legacy of melody.
J.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.
