At the age of seventeen Schubert entered his father's school as a master of the lowest class, and during his first weeks there he completed his first opera, The Devil's Pleasure Castle.
The libretto, like those of his later operas, was poor stuff, and the opera did not even receive the honour of a single public performance. The best part of the music was undoubtedly the overture, which is still occasionally performed.

: 'UP WITH THE CURTAIN'

The second of a new series of radio revels with Tommy Trinder
Peter Vokes Jasmine Dee Gwen Catley
Monte Rey
Cyril Grantham
The Top Hatters
A section of the BBC Chorus
Geraldo and his Concert Orchestra (by permission of the Savoy Hotel, Ltd.)
Presented by Douglas Lawrence and Vernon Harris
Here is the second broadcast in this new Variety show which made its radio debut with such success on July 8. It is to be given every ten days on alternate Saturdays and Wednesdays, and each Saturday broadcast will be heard by America.
Each week there will be a topical sketch with the signature tune ' He was a Handsome Territorial '. Listeners have already heard the kind of amusing things that can happen when Tommy (Trinder) and Peter (Vokes) join the Army. More laughs to come ... and what will happen if Tommy steals Jasmine (Dee), Peter's girl ?
For the first time that popular radio comedian Tommy Trinder , who has broadcast in so many ' Music-Halls '. is starring in a series. He recently joined the 'Band
Waggon ' company at the Palladium. Peter Vokes took Richard Murdoch 's place in ' Band Waggon ' when the latter was away for his operation. Peter and Jasmine have been doing a double act on the halls.
In each programme a ' Star of the Week' will be interviewed by Vernon Harris , and Geraldo, who has been at the Savoy for eleven years, will introduce a new ballad to be heard on the air for the first time. That big hit ' Deep Purple ', by the way, was introduced by Geraldo as his signature tune five years ago.

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.
