Valentina Aksarova (soprano)
Offenbach, who was a satirist of the first order, carried in his head for two years the idea of producing an operetta which should introduce the revered gods and goddesses of paganism into an atmosphere of sheer buffoonery. The libretto of Orpheus in the Underworld was duly written to Offenbach's complete satisfaction. The press at first professed to be horrified at what they felt to be sacrilege, but for once the public, intensely amused, could not be bothered with the opinions of newspaper critics, and the operetta was soon a huge success. The music, indeed, is Offenbach at his best.

: ' BACKGROUND TO SPORT'

' Training the Racehorse'
Tom Walls
Listeners will be eager to hear that colourful personality, Tom Walls, give a talk at the microphone, and when it concerns the training of racehorses they know that it will be a commonsense talk as well as an authoritative one. As everyone knows, the famous actor is a famous racing man too-owner and trainer both, whose April the Fifth won the Derby of 1932. Many listeners will remember his talk on the Derby, Past and Present, in 1933 and his commentary on last year's Cambridgeshire Handicap.

: Nikki Makes News

From 1923 to 1925 Spike Hughes - who describes himself as 'aged 28, going bald' - was studying music in Vienna, where he went to the opera nearly 450 times, and always stood at the back of the gallery with a score in his hand. Whether this has anything to do with the writing of Nikki Makes News is difficult to say. It is a romantic and sometimes satirical comedy 'founded very faintly' on Hans Andersen's story 'The Real Princess', the tale about the mattress and the split pea. But little of the fairy story remains. There are songs about Vienna as it really is, and songs about Vienna as the entertainment world would like it to be, digs at commercial broadcasting, and sidelights on the faded aristocracy of Central Europe. Altogether Spike Hughes's latest effort promises to be as amusing as his I Scream Too Much, and Bianca. Jan van der Gucht, who will be heard tonight, appeared in the latter production in January.
'Nikki makes News' 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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
