' Faust ' (Gounod)
Act III. Garden Scene
Cast
CHORUS of the Paris Opera and the SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Conducted by HENRI BUSSER
The scene is the garden of Margaret's house. Siebel, her youthful admirer, comes in to gather a nosegay, which he lays on Margaret's doorstep. Faust and Mephistopheles come in, and Faust bids the other begone before singing his beautiful address to the dwelling where the maiden lives. Mephistopheles returns, bringing a handsome bouquet and a casket of jewels, with which he replaces Siebel's humble posy.
Margaret comes home, dreaming of the handsome stranger who had spoken to her; sitting down at her spinning-wheel, she sings the simple old ballad of the King of Thule. Then she finds the casket and, with some hesitation, ends by decking herself with the jewels. There follows the famous Jewel Song. Martha, her neighbour, comes ih, and Mephistopheles takes charge of Martha, flattering her adroitly. Faust and Margaret join in two impassioned love duets, and finally part with a promise of another meeting on the morrow. Margaret opens her window, and thinking herself alone, sings to the night of her beloved. Faust rushes to the window and embraces her passionately once more, while Mephistophles, at the gate, shakes with Satanic laughter.

: The Week's Good Cause

An Appeal on behalf of THE HEDlNG-HAM SCOUT TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT SCHEME by Major-General The Right Hon. Lord MOTTISTONE, C.B.,
C.M.G., D.S.O.
Since the last broadcast appeal on behalf of the Hedingham Scout Training and Employment Scheme, 350 men have been trained and placed in permanent employment, making to date a total of over 500. Two new camps have been started— one at Ossemsley Manor, Christchurch, and the other near Cirencester. With four camps running at full strength, approximately 360 men can be trained and placed in employment every year. Those eligible are unemployed young men from the distressed areas, who are prepared to give up their unemployment benefit, if they are in receipt of it.
The Scheme is run on Rover Scouting lines with a Rover Leader in charge of each camp. During the three months' course the men are trained for private service, i.e., as kitchenmen, cooks, parlourmen, chauffeur-handymen, chauffeur-gardeners, and grooms.
The Scheme, which is under the auspices of the Boy Scout Imperial Headquarters, is not limited to fitting men for private service, but embraces any trade for which they have an aptitude, even the police force. The Ministry of Labour has backed it from the beginning by making a grant towards capital outlay and running expenses. Over and above this, there is required £10 for evtry man to be trained. For this sum, not only can a man be trained, but he can be placed in a job, provided he does well in Camp.
Her Majesty the Queen and the Prince of Wales have most graciously sent donations and wished the Scheme every success.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.
