: BAXENDALE'S (MANCHESTER) WORKS BAND

Conducted by J. A. GREENWOOD
JOSEPH FARMNGTON (bass) One of the longest runs on record of any musical production-Chu Chin Chow and The Beggar's Opera alone were longer-was made with the popular musical comedy The Maid of the Mountains. Harold Fraser-Simson's melodious score contributed very largely to this success. It was first put on at Daly's in 1917, with Jose Collins in the cast. (Hers, too, was a splendid achievement, and is still one of the more delightful War-time memories of officers and men on leave.) Fraser-Simson wrote music to other musical comedies, notably A Southern Maid, The Street Singer, and Betty in Mayfair ; but he is even better known to listeners by his settings of A. A. Milne's 'When We Were Very Young', and more recently by the incidental music to the adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's 'Wind in the Willows', put on the stage under the title of Toad of Toad Hall.

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.
