: Tunes of the Town—9 An excerpt from ' SEEING STARS'

Compere, JOHN WATT
FiRTH SHEPHERD presents
* LESLIE HENSON in 'SEEING STARS'
A Musical Comedy by Guy BOLTON and FRED THOMPSON
Lyrics by GRAHAM JOHN
Music by MARTIN BROONES
ACT II, Scene I The Cast includes
LESLIE HENSON
FLORENCE DESMOND
RICHARD HEARNE
MURIEL MONTROSE
LOUISE BROWNE
Roy ROYSTON
DEBROY SOMERS AND HIS BAND
Relayed from the Gaiety Theatre
The relay will open with the overture to the second act, followed by the entrance of the Gaiety chorus, all playing violins, luminous in the darkness. Then Richard Hearne , who has made a big hit as Colonel Stefan, plays the violin and dances a weird and eccentric dance. The music for this dance is a pot-pourri that includes an Irish jig, a hornpipe, a Russian dance melody, and the ' Never to be Forgotten Melody the theme song of the play.
Leslie Henson and Roy Royston make their entrance, and are later joined by Florence Desmond.
The overture includes most of the melodies that have helped to make Seeing Stars such a big success since it was produced at the end of October.

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.
