Old English Songs :
IT may seem strange that the Composer of such a song as Sally In Our Alley is not generally known by any compositions except this one song. The fact is that most of Henry Carey's work consisted of music for stage farces and satires and ballad-operas, which were immensely popular in their own days (early eighteenth century), but which were soon forgotten. Perhaps Mr. Nigel Playfair will some day add one of Carey's works to the succession of delightful Operas which he has revived for us.
' Of all the girls that are so smart, There's none like pretty Sally,' runs this song. Carey said that in it he gave expression to the charm of the simple courtship of a young couple whom he shadowed for a day-' a shoemaker's prentice, making holiday with his sweetheart.'

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.
