: SONGS FROM THE STARS—3

Recalling the music that brought fame to:
Jose Collins , CLara Butterworth
Ivy Tresmand, Thorpe Bates
The songs sung by : Victoria Sladen (soprano)
Cherry Lind (soprano)
Frederick Harvey (baritone)
BBC Midland Chorus
BBC Midland Light Orchestra
Conductor, Leo Wurmser
Script written by Dick Richards introduced by Hugh Morton
Produced by John Tylee
Many of the songs in this morning's programme have achieved almost world fame, striking examples of which are those sung by Jose Collins in The Maid of the Mountains. The Southern Maid, Sybil, artj The Last Waltz. At the same time Thorp: Bates had made a reputation for himself, playing opposite Jose Collins in The Maid of the Mountains and later, in 1921, in The Rebel Maid. Here the leading lady was Clara Butterworth , who three years previously had achieved no tmall success in The Lilac Domino. To a selection of the best-known songs from these shows are added some of the songs that Ivy Tresmand sang in the early part of her career-perhaps the most famous being ' Ltander ' from Karja. the Dancer, in which she played the part of Patricia.

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.
