A Recital of Songs on Welsh Poems in the Cywydd Metre
By VAUGEAN THOMAS
Sung by DAVID BRAZELL (Baritone)
(From Cardiff)
The Cywydd metre, in which the words of these songs are written, is a peculiarly Welsh form of poetry for which there is no English equivalent.

Mr. E. L. GRANT WATSON : ' Sky and Sea in Winter '
MOST people who describe or write about nature fall into the error which Ruskin described as the Pathetic Fallacy: that is, they treat natural objects as having personalities and read their own emotions into the scene they describe. In the series 1 country-side talks of which this is the first, Mr. Grant Watson is going to approach nature from a different and much more detached point of view. He thinks that plain matter-of fact descriptions will convey more of the real essence of the country-side to listeners than flowery effusions. Mr. Grant Watson , who obtained a first class in the Natural Sciences Tripos at Cambridge, went out with Professor Brown in an ethnological expedition to Auatralia. He then gave up science for literature, and has published several novels which have been praised by the critics, including 'Where Bonds are Loose,' ' The Desert Horizon,' and Moses Lord of the Prophets.'

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
