From page 21 of 'When Two or Three'

: Travels of a Governor's Wife: Lady Burdon

This morning, in her second talk, Lady Burdon is to continue her very interesting account of the trials and tribulations of a Governor's wife, especially in the West Indies. Entertaining can be no joke when your cook is capable of regaling her family on half the food you have provided for your guests, when your native boys water the whisky - with mosquito water at that; nor can life be exactly pleasant with insects eating your linen, novels, and best note-paper!
In Government House, Belise - a stout old wooden barn built by slave labour a hundred years ago - Lady Burdon survived the hurricane of 1931, when nearly 3,000 people were killed. This morning she will talk about hurricanes and other experiences she has endured.

Conductor, T. H. MORRISON
From a very early age Tchaikovsky was strongly attracted by Italian opera, and its melodious influence probably has a good deal to do with the fact that his music is in some ways less obviously Russian than that of his compatriots. He made more than one visit to Italy, and this piece, among the gayest and most care-free of all his music, was composed during a trip in 1880, most of which he spent in Rome. In a letter to Madame von Meek, Tchaikovsky says: 'I am working at an Italian Fantasia based on folk-songs. Thanks to the charming themes, some of which I have taken from collections, and others which I have heard in the streets, this work will be effective.'

(Cimbalom, PHIL DAVIS )
Hary Janos , the hero of the comic opera from the music of which this suite is drawn, is a fantastic sort of fellow with a something in him of Charles Chaplin , something of Bill Adams , who ' won the Battle of Water- loo ', and quite a lot of Baron Munchausen, who was given to boasting about his impossibly wonderful adventures. The opera is treated by Kodaly in the manner of a fairy-tale, and magic, mystery, folk-lore, naive simplicity, and fantastic humour are all to be found in the music. The first number, ' The Fairy Tale Begins', opens with a sneeze, to show that the tale is true-a Hungarian superstition; the second describes the clockwork soldiers in the Emperor's palace marching to clockwork music; the third is just a folk song ; the fourth tells of Hary routing the whole French army with his band of hussars, and of Napoleon begging for mercy ; the fifth is an intermezzo ; and the sixth a march called ' Entrance of the Emperor and his Court'.
Tickets can be obtained from [address removed] ; and usual agents. Prices (including Entertainments Tax) : 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved); 3s. (unreserved); promenade (payment at door: only) 2s.

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.
