. The performance has been organized to enable members of the public to measure and appreciate the deep-rooted interest that is now taken in our English songs and dances.
The dancers taking part at the Albert Hall number nearly 500 and they represent thirty-two of the forty-five existing branches of this Society that cover England. They are all amateurs, culled from every section and class of Society, who have taken up the dancing for pure pleasure and who will dance at this performance to share their pleasure with others.
General singing of folk songs (by both performers and public), which has formed an integral part of the Society's activities for the last fifteen years, will take place during the performance.

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.
