: Fashionable Crazes

' Cosmetics '
Mrs. H. RICHARDSON
This morning Mrs. Richardson is to sketch the history of a craze that was fashionable in the time of the ancient Egyptians and has remained so more or les; ever since. She will describe various new ways in which the Greeks and Romans used cosmetics, though they retained the Egyptians' kohl for the eyes, and how, as the years went by. women had a cosmetic tradition behind them, as it were, of sweet scents, darkened eyes, and red and white paint '.
She will describe cosmetics in Elizabethan times, and in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries when the craze was rampant and men carried ' vanity boxes ' to the wars. Cosmetics in Victorian times when ladies languished and make-up was pale and subtle and put on to deceive.
Cosmetics in our own times, when everything has swung round and make-up once more is as bright and vivid as the plumage of a fancy pheasant.

This musical comedy was done as a stage play both in England and America and has also been filmed. It is welcome news that Edith Day is to broadcast in the part she created in the London production at the Prince Edward Theatre in 1930. She is as distinguished on the air as she is on the stage, and listeners will remember her broadcasts in Frederica and Show Boat in 1934, and in Desert Song last year. They will remember her singing in several ' Songs from the Shows ', particularly in ' From the Royal Box' during Silver Jubilee Week.
'Rio Rita ' will be repeated in the Regional programme tomorrow at 9.0

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.
