: BEAUX AND BELLES

Sir Compton Mackenzie recalls songs, shows, dances, and personalities of Edwardian days
His guest, Ada Reeve
The singers:
Doris Gambell , Billie Baker
Redvers Llewellyn , George Betton
BBC Chorus
(Chorus-Master, Leslie Woodgate )
BBC Concert Orchestra (Leader. John Sharpe )
Conductor, Gilbert Vinter
Produced by Harold Neden
In his first programme
Sir Compton Mackenzie reminds us that the new century brought not only the end of a great reign but the passing of that great Victorian, Sir Arthur Sullivan. We hear music from The Emerald Isle, which, left unfinished by SuHivan. was completed by the man he named as his successor, Edward German. It was one of the first plays of the Edwardian era. We take leave, too, of the old Gaiety Theatre with sonars from its last show The Toreador, and a memory of that enchanting newcomer, Gertie Millar.
Sir Compton's guest, Miss Ada Reeve , talks about her roles in San Toy, Kitty Grey, and Three Little Maids, and songs from these plays are followed by memories of the smoking concert, the Music-Hall, and the ballroom. Harold Neden

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.
