: OTHER WOMEN'S LIVES

Olga Collett
Mrs. Olga Collett is concerned with all problems affecting the working lives of 650 women at the head office of a London firm. She has an endless series of problems-recruitment of her staff, transfers, resignations, salaries scales, and so forth. There is an aveuage of a hundred vacancies a year to fill, necessitating about five hundred interviews, and each vacancy involving a series of transfers. She remains human. The modern girl, she says, deserves a word of praise—and most of them are clever enough to use make-up and look as if they don't. A delightful confession from a woman chief-of-staff ; but then, she declares that among her favourite recreations is listening to the ' White 'Coons '.

Cedric Sharpe (violoncello) and John Pauer (pianoforte)
Brahms's Piano Quintet in F minor is regarded as his most important early work. It was originally conceived as a string quintet, but after it had been thoroughly tested in that form by Joachim and his colleagues, they explained to Brahms that no five string players could hope to achieve the huge effects which the music clearly demanded. Brahms then rewrote it as a sonata for two pianos, in which form it is still often heard. Finally he adapted it for piano quintet.

Scene, The Smugglers' Camp in the Mountains

Chorus of Smugglers
Conductor,
Sir THOMAS BEECHAM , Bart. Chorus Master, Robert Ainsworth
Producer, Harald Andre
The scene of the third act of Carmen is a rocky mountain fastness, the hiding place of the smugglers. Jose (tenor), the military deserter, is with them, torn by doubts of Carmen's love for him. Carmen (mezzo-soprano), the lovely gypsy who has seduced him from his duty, reads her own fortune from cards and sees death awaiting her. After the smugglers have left, Jose's true love Micaela (soprano) enters alone. Presently she is startled by a shot ; Jose, left on guard and seeing someone approach, has fired. It is the toreador, Escamillo (baritone), Carmen's other lover, who has come in search of his mistress. He and Jose fight, but the smugglers return and separate them. Escamillo goes away, a snatch of his popular .' Toreador's Song' being heard in the distance.

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.

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.
