: ' Hearts and Harmony'

A Miniature Musical Comedy by MAX KESTER
Music and Lyrics by PETER MENDOZA with WYNNE AJELLO , PATRICK WADDINGTON , ERNEST SEFTON , BETTY LE BROCK ,
BERTRAM DENCH
THE REVUE CHORUS
JIMMY BAILY and TED MORGAN at the two pianos
Production by MAX KESTER
When you have inherited a music shop in a sleepy place like Muddleton that doesn't want jazz, but only likes ' The Maiden's Prayer ', you're in a pretty predicament. And that was the case with Mary March.
She had a couple of assistants who were certainly amusing, and two electric gramophones she didn't know how to work ; and it is certain she must have gone smash if Martin Smith , representing the Melodious Musfc Company, with his slogan ' Music is the Medicine ', had not walked in. He made himself her manager for a fortnight, and set out to make the old town jazz-conscious..... But this lively little musical comedy goes to prove that even a live wire like Martin Smith had taken something on. There can be few more versatile broadcasters than Wynne' Ajello' Songs from the Shows The Arcadians, ' The White Coons '. Listeners will remember how charmingly she sang and acted the part of Gretel in Hansel and Gretel at the end of last year. Last month in the same week she broadcast in Geraldo's Non-Stop Hour and Breakfast in Evening Dress.

GLADYS RIPLEY
(contralto)
The music of Mendelssohn has a close affinity in spirit to the poetry of Tennyson, and what Elisabeth Wordsworth remarked of the poet might equally well apply to the composer : ' The absence of pain and gloom through all Tennyson's poetry is very remarkable ; he seems, as a rule, to shrink from facing the ghastly, the horrible, the eccentric, or the profoundly tragic. But he is completely in his element in a well-ordered, beautiful, cultured world, a world of broad spaces of light, rich crops and stately palaces' If Mendelssohn failed to express the deeper human emotions to the extent of Brahms, and lacked the heroic build of Beethoven, he has earned a place in the sun as an exquisite miniaturist who created with magic and unrivalled pen the atmosphere of fairyland. And for this alone he deserves immortality.

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.
