: The Rev. EBRARD REES: 'Old Welsh Easter Customs'

A LTHOUGH ancient Wales was ruthlessly
Puritan and took no cognizanco of Lent, many practices handed down from Druidic times still survive during Holy Week. From time immemorial the celebration of Easter in Wales begins with Flower Sunday or the Sunday of the Flowers. The date coincides with Pahn Sunday, but the origin of the custom is quite distinct.

Songs-III
Songs of the Home
By GWLADYS HOWELL
Sung by MARGARET OWEN
THE rhythm of the wooden cradle rocked by foot in the old Welsh homes accompanied many lullabies. Miss Howell will show that folk-music evolved without conscious reference to rule, and it was, therefore, heartfelt and sincere, with simplicity as the keynote.

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.
