: I The Land of Smiles I

Music by FRANZ LEHAR
English book and lyrics by HARRY GRAHAM
A new radio version by ALASTAIR SCOTT JOHNSTON
Introduced by John Palmer
The Land of Smiles is set partly in Vienna and partly in the old Imperial China - the land of smiles of the title-exotic and lovely, but vicious and cruel.
The story is concerned with an eternal problem: can true love overcome the frictions of two violently opposed ways of life? Or must the deep-rooted traditional prejudices of both inevitably lead to tragedy? It is the story of two people who tried to bridge the gap between East and West.
BBC CHORUS

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.
