Produced by Francis Laidler from the Royal Opera House, Covent
Garden
Compere, Lionel Gamlin
Listeners are to hear a broadcast from Covent Garden Opera House of the first three scenes from Red Riding Hood.
Scene 1 is Widdicombe Village-a colourful scene introducing listeners to the villagers and all the principals ; Red Riding Hood (Polly Ward) and her grandmother, Mother Hubbard (Nelson Keys) ; her devoted friend, Simple Simon (George Jackley ) ; and Prince Charming of Romancia (Patricia Burke ). The drama of the scene is when Red Riding Hood rushes on and says she has been threatened by Kingwolf (Arthur G. Rees ). The Prince asks the villagers to help him to kill the wplf. Then listeners will hear Patricia Burke singing ' I've got a pocketful of dreams '. The scene ends with the Maypole dance.
Scene 2, ' The Baron's Picture
Gallery', and Scene 3, ' The Carnival at the Hall ', provide Nelson Keys , George Jackley , and W. S. Percy (the Baron) with plenty of comedy, while the latter scene gives ' Bunch ' Keys one of his great opportunities in the pantomime-his impression of Snow White singing ' The Wishing Song '.

Bill Williamson 's musical career started at Marlborough, where he studied under Dr. J. W. Ivimey. His father, Dr. J. Williamson, is a leading amateur conductor in the North of England.
Bill abandoned engineering for music after a chance meeting with Jack Hylton , with whom he worked for some years as pianist and arranger. After leaving Hylton he became staff arranger to various music publishing firms and is now a free-lance arranger, working for all the premier bands in the country. He was commissioned to write and orchestrate the score for the British film The Edge of the World, which was rated one of the first ten films in 1937. In this series he not only asks
' How do you like your music ? ' but hopes to solve the problem as well, by playing something for everybody.

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.
