The Public Social Services—I
Mr. and Mrs. John Smith and Family
A. D. K. OWEN
In twelve talks before Christmas Geoffrey Crowther surveyed the public social services of this country, and now there are to be twelve talks by various speakers showing what the public social services do for a particular family-the family of a hypothetical John Smith , a typical working-class man. Listeners will hear about his job and about the job Mrs. John did before she married him. Their wages, insurance contributions, and savings; their marriage and the housing problem; John's short spell of unemployment, and what the State did for him to help him through. The first baby, and what the State did to help Mrs. John through; end so on and so forth. The John Smiths are to be introduced tonight.

: Comic Opera—3

Songs and Scenas from
'LA VIE PARISIENNE'
Melodies by Offenbach
Freely arranged by A. Davies Adams
Lyrics by A. P. Herbert
'A PRINCESS OF KENSINGTON'
Music by Edward German
Lyrics by Basil Hood also
A ' G AND S ' COCKTAIL or Mixed Savoy Grill with Libretto and Lyrics by LAURI WYLIE and Music by HERMAN FINCK
Groves gravely tells us in a footnote that ' comic opera is the opera of comedy, not comic" in the vulgar English sense However, this fact, if fact it is, has not frightened away the less serious minded musical public. Ever since the beginning of the eighteenth century, when opera-comique came into being in France and opera Buffa in Italy, audiences both high- and low-brow have shown their approval of comedy interwoven with music.
Offenbach's La Vie parisienne was first performed in 1S66, and was brought from France to London in 1872. The version broadcast this evening, however, will be rather different. For one thing, A.P.H.', of course, did not write the original libretto, nor did A. Davies Adams have anything to do with the musical adaptation. But then, in those days, a microphone was unknown.
German's A Princess of Kensington needs little introduction. His theatre music and operettas are still as popular as ever they were. An interesting point: his first operetta, The Rival Poets, was given its first performance in 1886, at St. George's Hall, now the home of BBC Variety.
The last opera, a Gilbert-and-Sullivan burlesque, was staged at the Hippodrome in 1925.

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.
