Conducted bv HERBERT A. CARRUTHERS. The words adapted and arranged from
Hogg's " Queen's Wake " by J. M. C. Music by Hamish MacCunn. Kilmeny, a beautiful maiden, wanders from her home in the country away into the solitudes of a wood, in quest of flowers and fruit, and to listen to the melody of birds. Tired with her ramble, she lies down to rest in a quiet nook, which, proving to be the haunt of the Faeries, she falls under their enchantment, is lulled into deep sleep, and spirited away to Faery Land. After seven years she begs to be allowed to return to her own country, that she may tell of the glories of the unseen land. Permission is granted, and she returns one day" late, late in the gloamin' Kilmeny cam' hame." Begged to tell where she had been, she recounts some of the wonders she saw there ; but after a brief period she is constrained to return to the " land of thought," and is never again seen on earth.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
