'AT RANDOM'

An unoriginal revue with Doris Hare
Charles Heslop
Ronnie Hill
BBC Theatre Chorus
Trained by Charles Groves
BBC Theatre Orchestra
Leader, Tate Gilder
Conducted by Mark H. Lubbock
Programme produced by Desmond Davis
Star of this show, Doris Hare first broadcast in the early Savoy Hill days with Jack Hulbert. A few years ago she went to America with Night
Must Fall. She was offered an audition by NBC, and her Cockney dialogue became a spotlight of the air. She was soon singing in the Vallee Hour, one of the most exclusive programmes across the Atlantic.
She was dubbed ' Dons Hare, the Piccadilly Hillbilly', and the name stuck. She is a film star, and has appeared in show after show in the West End. In It's in the Baa at the Saville she performed in a trampoline, a large mattress slung on springs. Her next show was with the Pelissier Follies, and. she then showed her versatility by playing in the comic relief in a Moliere play at the Apollo, The Robust Invalid, which was an English translation of Le Malade Imaginaire.

BEAUX AND BELLES

Sir Compton Mackenzie recalls songs, shows, dances, and personalities of Edwardian days
His guest, Ada Reeve
The singers:
Doris Gambell , Billie Baker
Redvers Llewellyn , George Betton
BBC Chorus
(Chorus-Master, Leslie Woodgate )
BBC Concert Orchestra (Leader. John Sharpe )
Conductor, Gilbert Vinter
Produced by Harold Neden
In his first programme
Sir Compton Mackenzie reminds us that the new century brought not only the end of a great reign but the passing of that great Victorian, Sir Arthur Sullivan. We hear music from The Emerald Isle, which, left unfinished by SuHivan. was completed by the man he named as his successor, Edward German. It was one of the first plays of the Edwardian era. We take leave, too, of the old Gaiety Theatre with sonars from its last show The Toreador, and a memory of that enchanting newcomer, Gertie Millar.
Sir Compton's guest, Miss Ada Reeve , talks about her roles in San Toy, Kitty Grey, and Three Little Maids, and songs from these plays are followed by memories of the smoking concert, the Music-Hall, and the ballroom. Harold Neden

The Monday Film: A Question of Guilt

starring
Tuesday Weld Ron Liebman
When Doris Winters reports the disappearance of her two small daughters, the police launch a massive search - and eventually discover the children dead. Their mother, who is separated from her husband, is accused of child battering and murder. In an atmosphere of prejudice against her easy-going life style, Doris is put on trial and finds that her morals are the subject of criticism rather than any possible crime. This made-for-TV movie is a controversial and gripping examination of morality and justice in present-day society.
Screenplay by JACK WILLIS AND MARY WILLIS Produced by PETER KATZ
Directed by ROBERT BUTLER

'HANSEL AND GRETEL'

A Fairy Opera
In Three Acts, by ADELHEID WETTE
Translated and adapted into English by CONSTANCE BACHE
Music composed by ENSELBERT HUMPERDINCK
Cast :
Chorus of Children
THE WIRELESS CHORUS
Chorus-Master, STANFORD ROBINSON
THE WIRELESS SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
(Leader, S. KNEALE KELLEY )
Under the direction of PERCY PITT
ACT I
Scene 1. At Home. In a poor room the boy Hansel (Mezzo-Soprano) and the girl Gretel (Soprano) are seen. They complain of hunger.
' 0 Gret, it would be such a treat If we had something nice to eat,
Eggs and butter and suet paste,
I've almost forgotten how they taste.'
So sings Hansel, and Gretel tries to cheer him by showing him a jug of milk, out of which their mother, when she returns, will make a blancmange. Hansel cannot wait. He begins to taste it.
Gretel then tries to keep her troublesome young brother out of mischief by giving him a dancing lesson, and the children sing as they dance.
The fun gets noisier, and then, when it is at its height, in comes the Mother (Contralto), whereupon—sudden quiet ! She scolds the children for neglecting their work, and, in her anger, accidentally overturns the jug of milk which was to have provided the family supper.
Weary and distracted, she drives the children out to gather wild strawberries, and, with a prayer for help, drops asleep, exhausted.
A gay song is heard, and there enters the Father (Baritone). The Mother awakes and expresses her discouragement ; the Father goes on merrily singing, and at last shows the cause of his happiness. He has sold the brooms he had made, and bought ham and butter and flour and sausages and vegetables and tea—such provision as the cottage has not seen for many a long day.
Then the Father asks where the children are, and on learning that they have (so near night-fall !) gone into the forest, he is alarmed. Ho talks, shuddering, of magic, and sings an eerie song of a ' gobbling ogress,' who lures children and bakes them in her oven.
With a cry, the Mother, wrought up. by this narrative, rushes out of the door to save her children, and tho Father follows.
ACT II
The Forest Sunset. The children are seen,
Gretel making a garland of wild roses. H&nsel looking for strawberries. Gretel sings a quiet song, 'There stands a little man in the wood alone.' Hansel takes up the garland, and crowns her as Queen of the Wood. He, courtier-like, presents her with his basket of strawberries ; they both begin to eat. Tho Cuckoo is heard, and the children sing an old song about him.
A friendly quarrel arises. Hansel snatches tho basket and finishes off the strawberries. Gretel, horror-struck, reproaches him. It begins to grow dark.
Soon the light has quite gone. The children are frightened. They see faces grinning from every tree. Hansel calls, and echo answers. The children crouch together.
The Sandman (Soprano) quietly creeps to the children, singing his song. He strews sand in their eyes. Half asleep, they sing their evening prayer

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.
