Colman's version of Milton's masque introduces us at once to Comus and his crew of monsters, with bodies of men and women but headed like wild beasts. Their revelry is cut short by the approach of the Lady, benighted in the woods, having lost the protection of her two brothers. Having disguised himself by 4 dazzling spells' as a shepherd, Comus offers to guide her to her brothers, and meanwhile to lodge her at a humble cottage near by. No sooner have they gone than the brothers, greatly alarmed at the loss of their sister, appear on the scene. They are met by the Attendant Spirit, who has assumed the disguise of their father's shepherd, Thyrsis. He tells them how Comus, by ensnaring the thirsty traveller with his baneful cup, transforms his victim into the likeness of a savage beast. As he is speaking a rout of Comus's revellers enter and vainly tempt the brothers to join their throng.
In the second act the Lady, lured by Comus into his palace, is seated in an enchanted chair. All manner of sweet delights and soft arguments are used in a vain endeavour to seduce the Lady from her steadfast purity. Just as Comus makes a final attempt to break down her resistance, the brothers rush in and put the enchanter and his crew to flight. The Lady, however, is left immovable in the chair, and to free her the Attendant Spirit invokes the nymph Sabrina. Sabrina's incantations release the Lady, who is joyfully reunited to her brothers. The Attendant Spirit, his task accomplished, leaves the happy mortals for his dwelling in ' the broad fields of the sky '.
An article by Julian Herbage will be found on page 12.

: THE ARCTIC TODAY

Twenty Years of British
Exploration
3—'Young Men and Dogs '
Charles Elton
A new stage in Arctic exploration began early in the 1920's, when a party of young men, still at Oxford, turned their attention to the large island of Spitsbergen. A large part of their problem was organisational in the way of stimulating public interest, collecting funds, and so on, before the expeditions could actually take the field.
The man largely responsible for this work was George Binney , with whom in the North were several other men who later became well known, most of them in the world of science. One of these is the present speaker.

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.
