: Betty

[Starring] W.H. Berry
A musical play by Frederick Lonsdale and Gladys Unger
Lyrics by Adrian Ross and Paul A. Rubens
Music by Paul A. Rubens
Adapted for broadcasting by Henrik Ege
Characters
The BBC Theatre Orchestra and the BBC Revue Chorus
Conducted by Harold Lowe
Produced by Ronald Waldman and John Watt
W. H. Berry created the part of Achille Jotte in Betty at Daly's Theatre in 1915, and it was one of his most diverting parts. His many admirers will look forward to this radio version of a highly successful musical comedy, which is being given for the first time.
Berry must have created a record among comedians by appearing at only two West-End theatres - Daly's and the Adelphi - from 1906 to 1923. In January he broadcast his own biography in 'Star-Gazing', and in April he broadcast in Who's Hooper as Valentine Hooper - the part he created at the Adelphi in 1919. He is as famous on the air as in the theatre and on the screen.
'Betty' was broadcast in the National programme last night.

: 'DIE WALKURE'

Act 2 of the Opera by Wagner
From the Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
Scene: A wild rocky pass in the mountains
Cast in order of appearance
Conductor, Wilhelm Furtwangler
Producer, Charles Moor
At the end of Act 1 Siegmund and Sieglinde have fled into the forest from Hunding, Sieglinde's husband.
The scene of Act 2 is a wild, rocky place. Wotan, desiring that Siegmund and Sieglinde shall bring forth heroes to defend Valhalla, orders his daughter, Briinnhilde, the Valkyrie, to defend Siegmund in his duel with Hunding. Fricka, Wotan's wife, the upholder of marriage sanctity, is outraged and prevails upon Wotan to allow Hunding to kill Siegmund.
Siegmund and Sieglinde, pursued by Hunding, approach exhausted. Briinnhilde, moved with compassion for the lovers, attempts to protect Siegmund, but Wotan appears and shatters Siegmund sword on his spear. Hunding kills Siegmund but is himself slain by Wotan. Meanwhile Briinnhilde picks up the pieces of Siegmund's sword and, taking Sieglinde with her, flees from her father's wrath at her disobedience.

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.
