: THE PRINCESS OF PARAPHERNALIA'

A piece of nonsense for all children under a hundred by Gordon Crier with lovely music by John Morley and, of course,
The Population
The BBC Midland Revue Chorus and the Revue Orchestra
Leader, Norris Stanley
Conductor, Reginald Burston
Production by Martyn C. Webster
The Princess of Paraphernalia, a fairy-tale embellished with both riotous humour and subtle satire, proved such a success when it was first broadcast some three years ago that it has produced two Paraphernalian sequels : Paraphernalia Revisited and The King Who Didn't Matter. The Princess of Paraphernalia has also been repeated in the Children's Hour.
This very happy collaboration of Gordon Crier , the author, and John Morley , the composer (who, incidentally, played the King in the original production of The Princess) sprang from the fact that both were actors in Birmingham in 1934-Crier at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Morley at the Alexandra Repertory Theatre.

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.
