: MISTRESS AND MAID

' The One-Maid Household'
Edna Thorpe
Today's broadcast in this series on the domestic service problem is to be given by a woman who was always hearing her friends complain of the difficulty of getting and keeping a reliable maid, and always being told by maids how difficult it was to find a mistress they could get on with. And so she spent nearly a year working as a daily help in different places in order to see things from both sides.
In this very practical talk she will try to put her finger on what is wrong, both with maid and with mistress-and very often with the house. She will also summarise for the benefit of listeners some of the things that she has noticed in successful partnerships between mistress and maid.

: The Children's Hour

REGIONAL
St Ives (Part 1)
A play for most ages, adapted by Sybil Clarke from the famous story by Robert Louis Stevenson.
With Peter Coke, Valentine Dunn, William Lyon Brown, Elliott Mason, Charles Lefeaux, Carleton Hobbs, Keith Pyott, Ivan Samson, and Hubert Leslie.

It is good news that listeners are to hear Stevenson's great romance of the Napoleonic Wars, which has been dramatised in four parts. It concerns the adventures of a very gallant French officer with the peculiar name of Anne de St Yves, who is a prisoner in Edinburgh Castle. He makes his escape and is sheltered by a Scottish family - and so meets Flora, the heroine, to be acted by Valentine Dunn.
Thus ends Part 1, and you will all be eager to hear his adventures. The part of the hero is to be broadcast by Peter Coke (pronounce it Cook), a newcomer to the London Children's Hour.

: TUNES OF THE TOWN

Compere, Charles Brewer
An excerpt from the Grand
Christmas Pantomime
'ALADDIN AND THE
WONDERFUL LAMP'
Presented by Tom Arnold
(For Julian Wylie Productions, Ltd.) from the Adelphi Theatre
Story retold by Dan Leno Junior , Marriott Edgar , Tom Arnold , Laurie Wylie , E. V. Maxwell-
Stewart, and Julian Wylie
Dances and Ensembles by Joan Davis
Staged by Robert Nesbitt
Characters in order of their appearance
16 Willoughby Babes and Kennedy Russell and his
Orchestra
Tonight listeners are to hear a broadcast from the early part of one of London's leading pantomimes. They will miss the actual opening, as the curtain rises at 7.45. The scene is the market-place in Pekin with Widow Twankey's laundry showing in a side street. Colour, comedy, music, crowd scenes, everything is right for broadcasting and most things are self-explanatory. But any points that require explaining will be covered in a commentary by Charles Brewer.
Seldom has a pantomime had in its cast so many first-class comedians. Arthur Riscoe , raciest of dames, Charles Austin, Edwin Styles , Jerry Verno , W. S. Percy , and the Egbert Brothers. Elsie Randolph , who has played so often opposite Jack Buchanan , makes her debut as a Principal Boy, and Jean Colin , who was Beauty in Beauty and the Beast, in the memorable Lyceum pantomime of 1928, is a most attractive Princess Badroulbadour.

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
