: HARRY HEMSLEY

★ The well-known child-impersonator in his latest sketch
This brilliant child-impersonator has been broadcasting regularly since 1927. He confesses in his book ' Harry Hemsley 's Stories for Children', ', published last year, that he has studied the psychology of children and gathered together their quaint remarks and observations for years. In the early part of his career he was a child-portrait painter. Memories of his sitters and of cousins, nieces, and nephews are embodied in the imaginary children he portrays so inimitably in story, and on the halls, and on the air.

Castellar has been captured and Manrico is the Count's prisoner, but no trace has been found of Leonora. As the chanting of the ' Miserere ' announces that the prisoner's last hour has come, Leonora appears and offers herself to the Count as the price for Manrico's life. The Count agrees and Leonora goes to tell Manrico in his dungeon that he is free, but she has taken poison and presently dies in his arms. Furious at the deception the Count sends Manrico off to instant death. At this point Azucena, seeing Manrico dead, reveals to the horror-stricken Count that he has murdered his own brother. Her mother is avenged at last.

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.
