At The Organ of The Tower Ballroom, Blackpool
One of George Edwardes's most notable productions was A Country Girl, put on at Daly's Theatre in 1902. It ran for 729 performances and is well up in the list of longest runs on the London stage, for less than thirty other productions have exceeded the 600 mark. It was revived in 1914 and again in 1931. Lionel Monckton, who died in 1924, was the composer of other popular musical comedies, one of the most successful being The Arcadians, the music of which was partly by him and partly by Howard Talbot. He collaborated. too, with Ivan Caryll in many musical comedies, including The Shop Girl, one of the earliest of the old Gaiety Theatre successes.

Relayed from
The South Pier, Blackpool
Massenet, more than one of whose operas have been broadcast, was particularly successful in catching and embodying in his music something of the character of the scenes which inspired it. He was one of the illustrious French musicians who won the Prix de Rome, the highest award which the Paris Conservatoire gives its students, and one which entails a period of study in Italy. It was no doubt some recollection of his stay there which gave him the idea for this bright and sparkling Suite. The names of its four movements can very well speak for themselves, but as listeners can hear, the music does indeed bring with it something of the gay and sunny South.

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.
