: The Last Night for Ever

by HUGH DAVID
This evening's last night of the Proms Is a reminder of other last nights, and In particular that of the most famous place of entertainment In London for two centuries, the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. They closed, as the newspapers of the time described It, ' for ever' on 25 July
1859: ' The last Dancing! the last Suppers! the last Punch! And no extra charge! '
Samuel Pepys , 200 years before, had found the Gardens ' mighty divertising,' though Joseph Addison in The Spectator in 1712, has his old friend Sir
Roger de Coverley remark that ' he should be a better customer if there were more nightingales and fewer strumpets.' But like so many great institutions of London's past Vauxhall Gardens is no more. Its attractions were sold off by auction In August 1859 and the site levelled to the ground. Narrator Garard Green With SCOTT CHERRY

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.
