: 'VOCAL GIRL MAKES GOOD'

A Familiar Comedy with Music
Book, lyrics and music by Spike Hughes. Additional music from operatic sources
Cast
The Singer is Nora Gruhn
The BBC Theatre Orchestra and BBC Revue Chorus, conducted by Spike Hughes
Production by Douglas Moodie
Vocal Girl Makes Good was first broadcast in June, 1936, under the title of / Scream Too Much.
This amusing satire on the world of night club, opera, radio, films, and Press turns the now almost traditional ' epic of the opera-singer ' neatly inside out. The story includes a commercial broadcast in New York, a Hollywood party where all the stars try to do business with the newcomer, and a big scene after the film-and-radio star has bought the historic opera-house and begun putting opera over with red-hot ' trailers ' in the approved cinema style. It is full of cracks and full of satire, in music as well as words.
' Vocal Girl Makes Good' will be broadcast again tomorrow (National,
7.15)

: 'LORELEY'

Act 2 of Alfredo Catalani 's opera from the Turin Studios of E.I.A.R.
The E.I.A.R. Symphony Orchestra
Conductor, Ugo Tansini
Chorus master, Achille Consoli
Cast
Alfredo Catalani , who was born at Lucca in 1854 and died at Milan in 1893, was the son of a distinguished musician who gave him his first lessons. In 1866 he went to the Paris Conservatoire and later studied at the Milan Conservatoire under Bazzini. He was barely in his twenties when he made a name for himself in Milan with an eclogue La Falce (The Sickle), for two voices and chorus, the verses of which were written by Boito.
In 1890 he succeeded Ponchielli as professor of composition at the Milan Conservatoire. During the summer holidays of 1893 he became ill and on his return to Milan he died at the early age of thirty-nine.
Catalani's first opera Elda was produced at Turin in 1880, and then followed Dejanice, Edmea, Loreley, and La Wally , all of which were produced at La Scala, Milan.
A short article on ' Lorelev' will be found on page 17

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.
