The folk song revival in England 4: No More Folk Songs
'No Nation has a richer store of traditional music than England, and none is more prone to undervalue its heritage.'
In 1922 Cecil Sharp , who had been in poor health for many years, died. Ralph Vaughan
Williams, although still deeply involved in folk music, ceased his collecting activities. Many of the young men who would have replaced them had been killed in the First World War.
The Folk Society struggled on, with most members holding the view that all the best folk songs had been collected.

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.
