THE STATION TRIO
Overture,' Prince Charlie Volti
DOLLY ROBERTSON (Contralto)
NOT till near the end of the eighteenth century was any serious attempt made to write down the old melodies of the Highlands and Islands. About 1760 the Rev. Patrick MaeDonald and his brother made a collection of airs which they published and, though they probably differed a great deal in their written form from the traditional way in which they had been sung for countless generations, they still'held much of the wild simple beauty which no other music has in quite the same degree.
Since the MacDonalds' day, many collections have appeared, and one of the most notable was a volume published in 1876 by the Gaelic Society of London. In our own time Mrs. Kennedy
Fraser has done very valuable work in rescuing and trans-scribing many of the tunes which would soon have been lost and forgotten but for her enthusiasm. No one can tell at this date how near her arrangements come to the genuine original forms, but they do observe to a remarkable degree what we have grown to regard as the spirit of Hebridean music.

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.
