Alphonse (A Shoemaker)
Pierre (A Blacksmith)
THE STATION ORCHESTRA
Conducted by CECIL MOON .
Scene: The interior of Flourette's
This Operetta shows the comical consequences of the jealousy of Pierre, the Blacksmith, and Alphonse, the Shoemaker, who are both in love with Fleurette, the pretty landlady of the village cabaret.
A new stewpan and a pair of dancing shoes each play their part in bringing to a happy conclusion a very boisterous dinner party. Fleurette is discovered at the fireplace examining: with sorrow a broken stewpan.
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.
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

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
