Script by Jonquil Antony
Last week Mrs. Dale and Geoffrey went to Dartford and found Mollie working in a dance-hall. Geoffrey told Mrs. Dak he would like to speak to Mollie alone, and that they would meet her at the railway station later; but when they didn't show up she caught the last train home alone. Dr. Dale advised her to give up helping Mollie, reluctantly she agreed to do so. Gwen met Mr. Fulton's new typist and they disliked each other on sightl Mr. Fulton warned Gwen that she must cooperate and adapt herself to the new circumstances. Bob began his new job at Sand bourne.

In tonight's Beaux and Belles, the but of the present series. Sir Compton Mackenzie recalls that famous company of pierrots The Follies, with whom he was so closely associated as a writer of lyrics and of their ' potted plays.' He has invited that charming Folly, Muriel George. who sang so many of H. G. Pelissier 's tuneful numbers, to talk over old times and listen to some of the old songs.
At the end of the Edwardian era,
Viennese musical comedy was firmly established, and tonight you hear songs from Oscar Straus ' A Waltz Dream and Leo Fall 's The Dollar Princess. But an English musical comedy had a longer run than either of these pieces — longer, indeed, than that of The Merry Widow, as Sir Compton wild remind us when he talks about The Arcadians.

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.
