★ by James Parish
Cast
(6y permission of Reandco)
Scene: A room in an empty house
Production by John Richmond
When a woman, principal character in this unusual play, finds herself alone in a deserted house ' just off Piccadilly ' for the purpose of laying the ghost of a somewhat wearisome old lady, she little guessed what would befall her.
The setting of the play is eerie— a dark room, the solitary watcher, and a dusty, uncurtained window through which filters the light from a street lamp some yards down the road.
When the watcher is joined in her vigil by a mysterious philosophising stranger she shows resolute calm. As for the ghost of the old lady, well, like all good ghosts it must be left to the climax.

: SONGS OF C. M. CAMPBELL

sung by Edward Reach (tenor)
There is a lady sweet and kind Once and no more
'Tis true I never was in love
I did but look and love awhile
I saw thee weep After
Love's Philosophy
Loveliest maiden, jewel rare (Maid
Such loveliness Marian)
Fairest of maidens, anan cruel time
Time and Tide Soul's Desire
Had I the voice of Morven
Dawn shall over Lethe break
Colin Macleod Campbell , who is well known as a composer of light and tuneful orchestral suites, some of which are broadcast from time to time, has composed numerous songs. The programme to be heard this afternoon consists of several of Campbell's best songs, such as ' There is a lady sweet and kind' and ' I did but look and love awhile ', which show his keen poetic feeling and simple harmonic and fluent melodic styles. His light romantic opera Maid Marian , the libretto of which is founded on the adventures of Robin Hood , has not yet been heard on the stage, but a special concert version was given at one of Mrs. Ralli's Sunday Concerts at the Hyde Park Hotel last October.
Campbell has written another opera, Thais and Talmaae, an early work in one act which was broadcast in January, 1937, and was first produced by the Royal Carl Rosa Opera Company in Manchester in 1921.

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.
