: A Log Cabin in Colorado and Songs I Heard There

A Monologue written and spoken by Fred E. Weatherly, K.C.

Edward Somerset - an old Oxford man - is the owner of an undeveloped mine in Colorado. For years he has been struggling, hampered by poverty and old age, to do enough work at his mine to keep his claim alive. His wife is with him, and their one hope is that some day a speculator will buy the mine.
Tonight-he is sitting alone in the cabin, his wife having gone for necessaries to the town below. Visions of the past rise in rapid succession before his eyes, and in fancy he hears songs that he has loved and several that he has sung himself.
When his wife returns and wakens him from his dream, she hands him a newspaper, in which he reads that Science has discovered means whereby actual songs sung by living voices can be heard over miles of space. He takes his wife's hand in his, and his closing words are, 'Thank God for Science.'
The songs will be sung by Ethel Dakin (Mezzo-Soprano) and Glyn Eastman (Baritone) assisted by The Station Male Voice Choir

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
