: Relayed from Paris

A Concert by THE NATIONAL ORCHESTRA
Conductor, RAOUL LABis with JOSEPHINE BAKER
RENÉ CHARLES
This afternoon listeners are to hear the ' gay dusky idol of Paris ' in two songs from La Créole in which she has made one of her big successes. She has long been one#of the fixed stars of Paris, and she made one visit to London in October, 1933, when she brought .her own revue to the Prince Edward Theatre. The night before it opened she broadcast three songs in the National programme, and on the second night of the run she appeared in Television. A special topical setting, with a palm in the foreground and a bay in the background, was built for her, and she gave one of" her best known songs ' J'ai Deux Amours '. She is animated, she is exotic, she is above all, gay. Nobody visits Paris, without going to see her.

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.
