Day After Day

A One-Woman Revue starring Frances Day supported by the BBC Theatre Chorus and the BBC Theatre Orchestra (leader, Tate Gilder)
Presented and conducted by Stanford Robinson

The title of this show should appeal to the glamorous star who is to give this one-woman revue, for Frances Day above everything has a sense of humour. It sparkles through her personality, whether she is appearing in revue or in musical comedy, in cabaret, on the screen, in sound broadcasting, or in television.
She made her name as a cabaret artist in America and her first appearance on the London stage in 1932. Next year at the Comedy she starred in How D'You Do? and at the Saville in 1934 was the hit of Jill Darling! At the same theatre' two years ago she radiated in Floodlight, but it is through her two most recent London Hippodrome shows that she will be best known to listeners. In August, 1938, she was heard with Stanley Lupino, Adele Dixon , and Ralph Reader in a broadcast from the theatre of The Fleet's Lit Up, and this March with Vic Oliver in a broadcast from the Hippodrome of Black and Blue.
In her revue tonight this fascinating blonde actress and singer will be heard in songs from her past successes, and also in songs and sketches never heard before.

'THE GLASS SLIPPER'

The story of Cinderella retold in words and music by Henry Reed
Produced by David Porter
In the cast:
The Three Chimes, the BBC Revue Chorus, Augmented BBC Variety
Orchestra, leader, Frank CanteU , conductor, Charles Shadwell
Since the war listeners have heard a number of radio plays adapted by Henry Reed from fairy tales and produced by David Porter. Invariably the princess has been played by that most charming of radio artists, Wynne Ajello. So delightful have these plays been that listeners will look forward all the more eagerly to hearing Reed's adaptation of the world's favourite story. The radio Snow White's Cinderella should be a joy to listen to.
And what a cast supports her -the Baron, that grand radio comedian, Dick Francis (how good he was a, few years ago as Mr-Bluebeard, a much-married millionaire, in a Gordon McConnel Grand Christmas Attraction Mr. and Mrs. Bluebeard !) ; the King, C. Denier Warren, of Kentucky Minstrels and White Coons fame ; Buttons, George Moon , who played for Bobby Howes for a month in Hide and Seek ; the Chamberlain, Maurice Denham , who is so versatile that he played Lord Peter Wimsey at the Comedy ; and last but not least, Prince Charming, Dudley Rolph , another radio favourite, who starred in cabaret with Frances Day when she first came over from America.

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.
