: Ena Baga

at the BBC Theatre Organ
This evening Ena Baga , who is organist at the Gaumont, Camden Town, will give her ninth recital on the BBC Theatre Organ. She has had wide musical experience. At the age of twelve she was playing the organ at a Southend church, and two years later took over the organ at the Strand Cinema in Southend. Later, coming to London, she spent a year at the New Gallery with her sister Florence de Jong, and later took over the Tivoli from John Reynders, where she played for many years.

Ena Baga comes of a musical family. She is a daughter of Con Baga, a well-known composer, and her three sisters, Florence de Jong, Celest Baga, and Beatrice Baga are musical, the first two being organists and the last a violinist.

: HOW DO THEY DO IT ABROAD?

Some Social Experiments
Described
3—' Holidays with Pay in France'
D. R. Gillie and Percy Ford , Ph.D.,
Professor of Economics, University
College, Southampton
Holidays with pay is a subject very much in the air in this country at the present time. France was one of the pioneers in the world question of industrial, efficiency through care-free leisure, and the Blum government received the gratitude of hundreds of thousands of French workers when it instituted the compulsory annual holiday on full wages.
This evening's speaker lives in Paris, has made considerable study of French industrial conditions, and will describe the effects of the holiday with pay in France.
Professor Ford will outline the position in Britain, and will deal not only with the advantages of the holidays with pay but with some of the practical difficulties that have to be overcome before it is a smoothly-running possibility.

: EDITH DAY as ' MADAME SANS-GENE

Music by Ivan Caryll
Cast in order of appearance Laundresses, soldiers, ladies of the Court, Ambassadors, etc.
The BBC Theatre Chorus (trained by Charles Groves ), The BBC Theatre Orchestra (leader Tate Gilder ), conducted by Harold Lowe
Act 1 (1792)—La Sans-Gene 's laundry in the Rue Royale, Paris
Act 2 (1807)—The Gardens of the Palace of Fontainebleau
Act 3-The Tuileries-Apartmcnts of the Maréchale Lefebvre
Production by Gordon McConnel , with the musical collaboration of Gwen Williams
This tuneful operetta was first produced by the great George Edwardes at the Lyric Theatre, London, in October 1903, the chief part being played by Evie Greene.
The story is based on the well-known Madame Sans-Gene , in the title-role of which play Rejane took Paris by storm before the war. The story tells how Catherine Upscher , proprietress of a Paris laundry, metes out generous treatment to a penniless young customer by the name of Napoleon Bonaparte. Her generosity is rewarded many years later when he has become Emperor.
The Duchess of Dantzic contains some of Ivan Caryll 's most delightful tunes, chief among them being the well-known songs ' Noblesse Oblige', ' Le Petit Caporal','The Milliner Monarch ', ' My Sabots ', and 'The Mirror Song '.
'The Duchess of Dantzic' will be broadcast again on Thursday
(Regional, 8.45)

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.
