In this evening's relay the whole of the first scene of Cinderella will be given on the air. It includes every artist in the pantomime and also tells a good bit of the story.
The part of Cinderella is being taken by Babette O'Deale , one of the most popular principal girls in the provinces. Mary Honri , who plays the Prince, is the daughter of Percy Honri , and was principal girl last year in Glasgow with George Gee as comedian.
Richard Hassett , who plays Buttons the Page, is well known in London and has been on the air in the London studios. As to the Ugly Sisters, Gertie is being played by Mamie Holland , that very funny comedienne who has been in many films with Leslie Fuller ; while the other Ugly Sister, Lillie, is being played by Saxon Davis , who broadcast in the National programme a few weeks ago.
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.
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.
