Two famous coloured singers will broadcast in this second ' Mississippi Nights ' programme—Evelyn Dove and Rollin Smith. Listeners who heard the first programme will be glad to learn that Rollin Smith , with his fine bass-baritone voice, will be coming over specially from Paris. Evelyn Dove is a mezzo-soprano who has had many successes in New York and on the Continent. She is making her first appearance in a ' Mississippi Nights' programme. The programme will present Negro music in varying moods.

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.
