Gay matter for a May Day evening! The Four
Musketeers, assisted by Mabel Pearl , have not been long in this country, but they will enchant lovers of syncopated harmony by their gay, brisk style. Laughter holding both its sides is inevitable when Charles Peurose and Partner take the air; their records sell in millions and make even Zulus laugh. For relief there are the languishing strains on mandoline and banjo of Mario de Pietro , who smiles all the time he plays. Rough stuff comes from the versatile Mrs. Pullpleasure directing a ' ladies orchestra.' Listeners will welcome, too, charming Phyllis Monkman in her first solo appearance in radio variety; she has for support her old Co-optimist comrade, Davy Burnaby , who has cantered rapidly into the very front rank of radio comperes.

Act III : A Private Room in an Inn
Chorus Master, ARNOLD PERRY
Conductor, Sir THOMAS BEECHAM
Relayed from The Royal Opera House, Covent
Garden
(Opening Night of Season)
The events leading up to the third act of this brilliant comedy are concerned with the amorous behaviour of that old reprobate, Baron Ochs. He had made an assignation with young Octavian, who, having had occasion earlier in the opera to disguise himself as a pretty chamber-maid, is known so to the Baron. The scene is a private room at an inn. Octavian is there, and so are several odd people whom Octavian has hidden in various places with the idea of later scaring the Baron and making a fool of him. Ochs presently appears, hopeful and full of ardour. He has, however, anything but a gay time. He is harried by spies, pestered by a woman who comes and claims him as her husband and brings with her four children she declares to be his. The Commissioner of Police arrives, then Faninal, the father of the girt to whom Ochs is betrothed, and after them the Princess, his cousin, in the presence of whom the baffled Ochs is finally and completely humbled. He takes flight, and the Princess, resigned to the loss of Octavian's love, gives her consent to his betrothal to Sophie, now released from her promise to Baron Ochs.

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.
