ELSIE COCHRANE (soprano) Louise sings this beautiful song ' Depuis
Ie jour ' to Julien in the little house they have found for themselves in Montmartre. He has asked her if she is happy and this is her reply, a joyous tale of what life means to her now that they have found each other. She sings of her old drudgery having made way for a very fountain of light and happiness.

The Ecossaise is a dance of Scottish origin and was danced to a bagpipe accompaniment. By the end of the eighteenth century a modified form of it that turned it into a rather livelier kind of dance had become popular.
Of all the rich variety of Scottish national dances the Ecossaise seems to have been the favourite among foreign composers. Schubert wrote a number of Ecossaises for piano, so did Beethoven, Chopin and Weber. Weber's Six Ecossaises for piano were written in 1802, no doubt for some publisher who found this dance to be popular among amateur pianists.
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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
