: 'That Reminds Me'

A Few Reminiscences by ALBERT WHELAN
Accompanied at the pianj by JEAN MELVILLE
Once again listeners are to hear Albert Whelan whistle his signature tune which is becoming as well known as the nonchalance with which he draws off his gloves on the music-halls. He has been broadcasting for nearly ten years and has been head-lined in music-halls all over the world. His first professional appearance was in a tent on the Australian gold-fields. Since then he has played in almost everything except Shakespeare. He has appeared in several films and has another claim to fame as one of the Alexanders in the popular Alexander and Mose act.

Covent Garden
Act II of Louise opens with a fine piece of tone painting in the form of a Prelude which is entitled ' Paris Awakes '. The curtain rises on a street scene in Montmartre, and we see the people in the street busily going about their work, such as the milk-woman, the rag-picker, the paper girl, etc. Julien appears with some of his friends and they plan to seize Louise on the way to her work. The dressmaking girls, among whom are Louise and her mother, begin to arrive. Louise goes into the house and when her mother has gone Julien rushes in and reappears with Louise. He tries to persuade her to fly with him, but she refuses.
After a short and brilliant orchestral interlude, the scene changes to the dressmakers' workroom, where we see
Louise surrounded by her friends. They make fun at her being in love, and she answers by singing of the spirit of Paris. From the street is heard a serenade sung by Julien, which has its desired effect on Louise, who finally tells her friends to inform her employer that she has been taken ill and has had to go home. She leaves her friends and goes off with Julien.

' Shrewsbury to
Bridgnorth G. M. BOUMPHREY
Last week G. M. Boumphrey described the first stage of the trip he is making in a folding canoe down Severn and Thames with his friend George. Starting from Newtown, they reached Shrewsbury in spite of adventures, for there was very little water—often no more than two inches and their canoe draws four ! Then when they came to a really deep, swift place the good ship capsized, and George swam ashore with his watch in his mouth.
This week G. M. Boumphrey will describe the trip from Shrewsbury to Bridgnorth and those who remember his series of broadcast talks on the Roman roads will be interested to know that he is to visit the old Roman city of Uniconium.

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.

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.
