The Camera and the Song


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
The Camera of Nigel Walters and the Songs of Max Boyce My Green Valley
' In our little valley they've closed our colliery down
And the pithead baths is a supermarket now,
Empty journeys red with rust roll to rest amidst the dust,
And the pithead baths is a supermarket now.'
One wet day Harry Morgan buried his granny once again, another victim of rugby fever, as the whole valley emptied to see Neath and Aberavon combine to take on the mighty All Blacks. MAX BOYCE , ex-miner, rugby fanatic, sings of his South Wales valley.
Musical arranger BILL SOUTHGATE

The Camera and the Song

BBC Two England, 16 August 1974 21.00

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.
