: Depression over Fairyland '

A Musical Fantasy
Book and Lyrics by HENRIK EGE
Music by ROBERT CHIGNELL
Produced by GORDON MCCONNEL
Characters in the order of their appearance :
THE WIRELESS LADIES' CHORUS
THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA
(Leader, Montague Brearley )
Conductor, STANFORD ROBINSON
This musical Fantasy by the author of Seven Days' Sunshine, part-author of / Sketch Your World, and adaptor of The Gypsy Baron, was first broadcast with great success in September, 1931. It tells a fantastic tale of a business man turned into an indiarubber ball and bounced into a Fairyland severely hit by the depression. The appropriately light music is by a well-known broadcast composer whose incidental music to Julius Cœsar, Henry V , Coriolanus and A Voyage to Lilliput will be remembered. The strong cast contains many experienced broadcasters, notably Patrick Waddington , Bernard Ansell , and Joseph Farrington , well known as an oratorio and opera singer.

: An Orchestral Concert

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section E)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
The divertimento, although in essentials serving much the some purpose as the suite, was actually based upon different principles. As a rule, the divertimento was intended for the open air, and, as its name implies, was purely a diversion. In short-and using the description in its most dignifiedlight-beer-garden music. Mozart wrote a number of these divertimenti, besides cassations, and serenades, all devoted to the same high purpose. Each contains a number of fa irly short, light and graceful pieces, mostly, but not necessarily, in dance rhythm.
Hassan, a play of the East, was written by the late James Elroy Flecker , poet and dramatist. The incidental music was composed by his friend Delius , to whom the atmosphere of the play appealed. It was beautifully staged by Basil Dean at His Majesty's Theatre in 1923, and had a run of 281 performances.
Svendsen, born at Christiana in 1840, began his musical career as a violinist, but after having practically lost the use of his hands, he devoted his life to composition and conducting. As a composer Svendsen possessed a pleasing melodic vein and displayed a craftsmanship of no mean order. In his gay and brilliant Carnival in Paris we find conciseness of expression, vitality, and an artistic feeling for orchestral colour.

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.
