('The Bat')'

(From North Regional)
Act I — Eisenstein's House
Characters in order of appearance:
Conductor, ROBERT AINSWORTH
FULL of sparkling gaiety, instinct with the spirit of heedless youtli, Die Fiedcrmaus (The Bat) is such music as one looks for from the hand which gave us The Blue Danube. The story is the usual comic opera plot of dancing and flirtations, masks and disguises, in which the Bat himself, Dr. Falke, is the leading spirit. He has an old score to pay off against his friend the Baron Eisenstoin, and takes advantage of Eisenstein's having to go to prison for a week. But Falko persuades him to put that off until he has been to a ball being given by the Prince Orlofsky. Adele, too, the Baroness's chamber-maid, has an invitation to the ball, for which she begs leave of absence on the tearful plea that her dear aunt is very ill. Falke carries Eisenstein off-ostensibly to see him safely locked up—and in her husband's absence, Rosalinda, the Baroness, has a visit of condolence from Alfred, an old admirer and ' an irresistible tenor,' and while he is with her, the prison governor arrives to carry off Eisenstein. Alfred, to avoid compromising the Baroness, allows the governor to assume that he is Eisenstein, and goes off to prison in the Baron's stead.

WEATHER FORECAST, SECOND
GENERAL NEWS BULLETIN

: On the 9.20: Conversations in the Train: XI

The eleventh of a series of 'surprise items' which has proved immensely popular. The principle is by now well known: you are introduced to two or three people in a railway compartment, who fall into conversation. You may learn their names in the course of the conversation or after: and they are usually distinguished people. This 'convention' - carried out realistically, to the extent of using train-noises from the sound-effects department - may claim to have solved many of the difficulties of the broadcast discussion. Subjects of such permanent and topical interest as war, the police, the younger generation, and the American point of view have been discussed by such eminent people as Julian Huxley, Miss Dorothy L. Sayers, Hilaire Belloc, Sir Maurice Amos, Lord Ponsonby, and E.M. Forster. So look out for something good tonight.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
