H.M.S. Pinafore, Act II (Sullivan)
Here is a brief synopsis of the story of Gilbert and Sullivan's evergreen comic opera, H.M.S. Pinafore, the musical numbers of Act II of which are being broadcast in the above programme from gramophone records made by Sir Henry Lytton as Sir Joseph Porter , George Baker a3 Captain Corcoran, Charles Goulding as Ralph Rackstraw , Elsie Griffin as Josephine, and Bertha. Lewis as Little Buttercup.
Ralph Rackstraw , an A.B. of H.M.S. Pinafore, loves Josephine, his Captain's daughter, but Sir Joseph Porter. K.C.B., First Lord of the Admiralty, is also in love with Josephine. Ralph, taking courage from Sir Joseph's dictum that all men are equal, proposes to Josephine, but she is most indignant and tells him he ought not to approach his superior officer's daughter; later, however, she repents and rushes out on to the deck in time to prevent his blowing out his brains in despair, and confesses her love for him before the ship's company. Dick Deadeye overhears a plot between the two to elope that night. As the moonlight evening draws on, Josephine becomes dubious, but Sir Joseph, thinking to further his own suit, tells her that difference of station in life is no bar to love, an argument which decides her in favour of his rival. Meanwhile, Dick Deadeye has told the Captain of his daughter's intended elopement, which the Captain stops. Unfortunately he says damme ' to Ralph, which is overheard by Sir Joseph, who, refusing any explanation, orders Captain Corcoran to his cabin. However, when Sir Joseph learns from Ralph why such a word was used, and also is treated to a practical demonstration of Josephine's love for Ralph, he orders Ralph's arrest and commitment to cells in chains. Buttercup then explains that many years ago when she was a nurse she changed two babies, and that Ralph should now really be Captain Corcoran and vice versa. Sir Joseph, now that Josephine's rank is lowered, yields her to Ralph, and is himself comforted with Hebe's hand, as is the Captain with that of Buttercup.

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.
