With music by George Posford including John Garrick, Tessa Deane, and Dick Francis
The Players:
The Revue Chorus and The BBC Theatre Orchestra
Conducted by Charles Shadwell
Orchestrations by Harry Perritt
The action of the play takes place at the very beginning of the 19th century, first in Venice, later in the little German state of Wurtemburg
Musical Numbers:
Venetian Moon (The Gondolier)
The Menace of Venice (Pici)
First Love of All (Gianna and Max)

Great Grey Clouds (Max)
Let the world go by (Gianna and Villagers)

My Song (Gianna and Max)
Song, Invitation to the Waltz (Gianna and Chorus), by George Posford, in addition to Weber's famous work which is used in the production
Author's Note:
The story, which attempts a fantastic explanation for Weber's writing 'Invitation to the Dance', is purely imaginary and has no basis in historical fact

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.
