Tonight's programme of Scottish poetry deals with writers of our own time. It is obviously impossible within the limited scope of this series to give a comprehensive survey of the field of modern Scottish poets, and there is room only for selections from those poets who are acknowledged to be the most distinguished of our time. The late Neil Munro, perhaps better known as a novelist, wrote a number of poems distinguished by their marked individuality. Many of them are light singing pieces, but he sometimes struck a deeper note, as in the 'Lament for MacLeod of Raasay'. Violet Jacob occupies a high place among living writers of Scottish vernacular verses. 'Tam o' the Kirk' and 'Wild Geese' will be read. Charles Murray, who has complete mastery of the dialect of the North-cast, has captured the spirit of the countryside more successfully than any poet of that region. His 'Whistle' is perhaps the most popular dialect poem among the younger generation. Tonight 'The Tinker' will be read.

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.
