The Lilac Domino

A new radio version by Alastair Scott Johnston
The Lilac Domino is the first of the new series of operettas, old and new, which will occupy this spot for the next few weeks. Set in the French Riviera, it tells the story of a wealthy old roue, Gaston le Sage, engaged to a young and beautiful widow, Leonie, and his nephew Paul, and his daughter Georgine. Paul, destined to marry Georgine, unfortunately loves Leonie, and Georgine falls for Jack Allison, a gambler and remittance man. Thus what is an essentially simple situation turns into an absolutely splendid mess before all is finally sorted out.

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.
