This Ballet is divided into two parts : ' The Curse ' and ' The Awakening '. Part i opens with great excitement in the Palace. Attendants enter; the Princess is brought in; there is a Procession and the King and Queen proceed to the Throne. The Queen smiles graciously as she looks upon the fairies. The first fairy promises the Princess beauty, the second goodness, the third power, the fourth grace, the fifth happiness, and the sixth sweetness of voice. But the Ugly Fairy steps forward and says that she will give the Princess death. The Queen faints and the Ugly Fairy rides away on her broom-stick. However, the youngest of the fairies changes the sentence of death to sleep for twenty-one years, and the Princess falls asleep.
Part 2 shows the sleeping Princess.
The Prince is heard in the distance ; he enters and bends over her and she awakens, rises, and embraces him. Rejoicing and festivities begin in which all join.

: 'The Cat and Cauliflower'

This burlesque operetta, or as the authors describe it, musical improbability, is based on a legend four hundred years old. The landlord of a country inn, 'The Cat and Cauliflower', had a daughter called Phyllis who was so beautiful that all the villagers fell in love with her. Her father, perplexed, made them play skittles on the green, the winner to claim her hand. This is all brought up to date, except that the villagers of Little Muddlecombe play darts instead of skittles, and the whole thing is acted to delightful music by the well-known composer R. Barclay Wilson, with a desperate villain in the person of Sir Mervyn Muntatuke to make the plot thoroughly exciting.
This burlesque was broadcast in the Regional programme last night

: The League of Nations-I

The League and Native Races
The Right Honble. The Lord LUGARD,
G.C.M.G., D.S.O.
The 15th Ordinary Assembly of the League of Nations takes place at Geneva on September to. At such times the work of the League comes into prominence, but many people are cpt to forget that a great deal of very valuable work goes on year in and year out, regardless of assemblies and councils. One such activity is that of the Mandates. The Great War left many territories inhabited, in the words of the Convention, ' by peoples not yet able to stand by themselves under the strenuous conditions of the modern world ', and it was recommended that the ' tutelage of such peoples should be entrusted to advanced nations, who by reason of their resources, their experience, or their geographical position, can best undertake this responsibility '. Several nations have accepted this responsibility and exercise the tutelage of such peoples as mandatories on behalf of the League.
Lord Lugard, who is known principally for his close association with Colonial development in Africa, has been British Member of the Permanent Mandates Commission of the League of Nations since 1922. He has made a special study of this problem, and his book ' The Dual Mandate in British Tropical Africa ' is now a classic.

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.
