: 'THE FILM SCRIPT'

A short story written for broadcasting by William Gerhardi , and read by Ronald Watkins
This is a cynical, poignant story which should wring the heart of every author who has dealt with the film world and open the eyes of those who have not to the quaint processes behind the fortunes of a film script. The story of Mr. Baldridge, novelist, author of one best-seller and thirty-one failures, and his attempts to make good on the screen is a tragi-comedy typical of the pen of William Gerhardi. Russian-born novelist and short-story writer, Gerhardi began writing a Tolstoyan novel in Russian at the age of fourteen. Since then he has published a great many works, and has written for radio on previous occasions.
It has been said of William Gerhardi that he is ' polyglot, educated, cynical, indiscreet, and erratic

: 'MADAME SANS-GENE'

Act 1 of Umberto Giordano 's opera from the Rome Studio of E.I.A.R.
The E.I.A.R. Symphony Orchestra
Conductor, Umberto Giordano
Chorus Master,
Constantino Costantini
Umberto Giordano , who is conducting the broadcast performance of his opera Madame Sans-Gêne, was born at Foggia in 1867. Madame Sans-Gêne is the story of a laundress who becomes a duchess at the Court of Napoleon. The first act takes place in Paris on August 10, 1792, in Caterina's laundry. Outside the crowds are moving about the square. Caterina recounts her adventures to Fouche, who has come to fetch his laundry, and reveals that there is some affection between her and the Sergeant Lefebvre. The beating of a drum announces the burning of the Tuileries. Caterina is shutting up her shop when an Austrian fugitive, Count Neipperg, asks for shelter, as he is wounded. Caterina cannot refuse a wounded man. and hides him before Lefebvre and his soldiers come in search of him. Lefebvre is filled with jealousy when he discovers Neipperg, but Caterina succeeds in calming him and they become engaged.
The second and third acts take place nineteen years later when Lefebvre and Caterina are now the Duke and Duchess of Danzig. In spite of her position, Caterina has not forgotten her former life, and she is the subject of much amusement at Court. Her goodness of heart, however, eventually wins the respect of Napoleon and saves the Count Neipperg who has got into trouble.

: THE UNDER-TWENTY CLUB

Discussion-' Adventure'
Chairman, Howard Marshall
Visitors to the Club-Sir Malcolm Campbell and Ellen Wilkinson , M.P.
Presented by F. N. Lloyd Williams and George Dixon
In this, the opening broadcast of the new series for young people between the ages of fifteen and twenty, a small group of adolescents will be present in the studio to question the two chief speakers. Adventure has befallen both these broadcasters in different ways. Sir Malcolm Campbell declares that he goes deliberately out to seek it, while Ellen Wilkinson says that adventure comes to her in the course of her work.
Sir Malcolm Campbell has been broadcasting since 1928 when he gave his first talk on ' Adventures in the Sahara'. Since then he has broadcast on other of his exploits, most notably the breaking of the world's speed record and his part in the search for the Cocos Island treasure.
Ellen Wilkinson has taken part in radio discussions and also in ' The Week in Westminster '. Her greatest adventures, she claims, were meeting Trotsky, Lenin, and Gandhi, and being in Madrid under shell-fire.

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.
