DORIS WENHAM (contralto) In 1820 Auber was fortunate in securing the partnership of Scribe, who was one of the most skilful and prolific librettists of the period. The partnership lasted until Scribe's death in 1861. Fra Diavolo, a romantic comic opera dealing with the adventures of a notorious bandit, is a good specimen of their joint work. It was written in 1830 and is considered to be one of Auber's best operas. The music is full of catchy tunes and has a verve, grace and clarity that are characteristically French in style. The predominance of martial tunes and rhythms, however, was a sign of the post-Napoleonic times, for the pomp and glitter of military bands were becoming fashionable.

John Berryman and Adele Wesseley's Entertainers
'Crazy People' from The Winter Gardens, Margate
Introduced by Harry S. Pepper and Davy Burnaby

For the third season in succession 'Crazy People' are performing at the Oval Bandstand, Margate. It was hoped to give the broadcast from there in order to include the lap of the waves, and the laughter of the holiday audience; but as the old adage says, 'Three shows a day, if wet in the town hall', and in view of our English summer it is safer to use the Winter Gardens Pavilion for this date with the microphone.
When Harry Pepper went down to see them, the rain was so heavy that at the matinee there were about fourteen people in the audience; he went again at night, when there were over 1,000. This valiant band of 'troupers' had given just the same show in the afternoon. In seven weeks last summer they played to over 100,000. They sell a little badge at the end of the performance, and have collected over £300 for Margate charities.

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.
