'Fred Weatherly, an appreciation'
For over half a century some of the songs on every piano throughout the English speaking world have borne the familiar announcement, Words by F. E. Weatherly. ' Front ' Nancy Lee ' and ' The Midshipmite' of the late seventies to ' Up from Somerset ' and ‘Roses of Picardy ' of modern times is a far cry: yet Fred Weatherly gave us them all. as well as the, Holy City', 'Darby and Joan,' ' Beauty's Eyes,' , Thora,' 'Danny Boy,'and a host of other songs which have become household names.
Fred. E. Weatherly died at Bath, where he lived for many years, in September, 1929, at the age of eighty. On his house a commemorative tablet is being placed by the Corporation and Citizens of Bath. This will be unveiled by Dame Clara Butt, O.B.E.. the most distinguished singer of his songs, today, October 8.
The form of memorial it is proposed to ralse to him is the endowment in perpetuity of a bed In the Royal Mineral of Bath - a National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases, founded in 1738 by the elforts of Beau Nash to bring within the reach of poor persons of Great Britain and Ireland the healing waters which for two thousand years have been pouring out their abundant supply.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
