'MISS LUCY LONG' - our domestic help - slumbers; it is time to rise, however, and efforts are made to induce her to do so. She yawns, and (Allegretto) gets up. She is heard coming downstairs, where she proclaims herself loudly (Moderato). The next movement 'Lucy' is discovered at her work ; and while she works, she sings her favourite melodies in her own particular style. Becoming more than usually frivolous, she indulges in some eccentricities which bring about an appalling disaster to the crockery! The Adagio, which follows, depicts her remorse ; she soon recovers her spirits, however, and tells all and sundry that 'Charlie is my darling.' We next meet her on Hampstead Heath: it is Bank Holiday, and 'Lucy' enjoys the fun - and a waltz. Later, they drop into 'ragtime.' Now we are interested listeners to a bit of love-making between ' Charlie ' (Trombone) and 'Lucy' (Bassoon), and after a suggestion of ' Haste to the Wedding,' 'Lucy ' pets married, and will have the Wedding March-in 'ragtime,' too!
'THE Church Clock Strikes Four '; 'A Hunting We Will Go'; 'John Peel,' and some
of his eccentricities. He attends the Hunt Dinner, and will sing 'Drinking': after this, he is very sad and only recovers with the aid of a spirited Cake-Walk.
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.
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
programmes, online etc.
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
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
