: 'THE KIBOSH OF KEDGEREE'

A Comic Operetta by Ashley Steme and A. A. Thomson
Lyrics by A. A. Thomson
Music by Ashley Sterne
Characters
Courtiers, guests, ladies of the harem, citizens, etc.
The BBC Revue Chorus and BBC
Variety Orchestra conducted by Mark H. Lubbock
The action takes place in the Kibosh's Palace and grounds
The Time is 70 years ago, in the year 1937
Production by Archie Campbell
'The Kibosh of Kedgeree' was broadcast in the National programme on Tuesday.
This new burlesque has been specially written for W. H. Berry by the popular authors of Snapdragon, in which this famous comedian broadcast in January. Berry, as the Kibosh, takes the part of an imaginary Eastern potentate. Viola Compton , who broadcasts as his wife, has spent her life on the stage like her famous sister Fay, has acted leading parts both in England and America, and is a well-known broadcaster. Patrick Waddington is always welcome as a jeune premier of the air; and Joan Collier, who sang in the revival of The Beggar's Opera at the Criterion, has been making her name in television (The Beggar's Opera, Polly, The Policeman's Serenade, Variety) and on the films since she made her debut as a 'sound' broadcaster in The House Fairy a year ago.

: THE ROYAL PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY'S CONCERT

The London
Philharmonic Orchestra
Leader, David McCallum
Conductor,
Sir THOMAS BEECHAM , Bart. from Queen's Hall, London
(Sole Lessees, Messrs. Chappell and Co. Ltd.)
Sibelius
Symphony No. 4, Op. 63
1 Tempo molto moderato, quasi adagio. 2 Allegro molto vivace. 3 II tempo largo. 4 Allegro
Symphony No. 7, Op. 105 (in one movement)
A programme of three of Sibelius's last four symphonies, though generous measure, is a much less indigestible musical menu than a programme of three of the later Beethoven symphonies would be. The Fourth is short and extremely concise, the Seventh a one-movement work ; and although Sibelius packs a great deal into these comparatively limited spaces, these two works-generally considered his highest achievements as a symphonist-are by no means as enigmatic now that most of us are familiar with them as they seemed when they were first performed.
As for the Sixth, it is crystal clear, alike in thought and in texture. Quite undeservedly, it is the least well known of all Sibelius's symphonies. Constant Lambert justly speaks of it in his book ' Music Ho! ' as a ' fascinating study in halftones, emotional and orchestral '.
The Fourth Symphony was composed in 1911, the Sixth in 1924, and the Seventh in 1925.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
