: Revival of: House Party

The brighter and younger novelists and playwrights of the post-war years have too often found inspiration and butts for their barbed wit in the heterogeneous modern week-end house party. Aldous Huxley, Noel Coward, and Evelyn Waugh have all worked this rich vein of ephemeral folly with considerable profit. In this jeu d'esprit, inspired by Poulenc's ballet music for Les Biches, the author turns on these contemporary Savonarolas with their own weapons and compiles a fantastically satirical entertainment within the frame of just such a house party as they love. "House Party" was first broadcast in September, 1931, and many of the original cast remain to decorate its cheerful revival.

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.
