THE Welsh Folk Songs to be sung by Lily Clatworthy in this programme have been collected by Mrs. Herbert Lewis during the past three years in Flintshire and the Vale of Clwyd. Many of the songs were in danger of perishing, and much painstaking work was necessary to induce the old people to recall the almost-forgotten songs of their childhood. In most cases a phonograph was employed to record the songs.
' Making Christmas Presents,' by Mrs. VESTA GILL
THE number of things that can be made from simple materials is really surprising.
It is possible to make exciting things like sea-planes, dolls, railways, and farms. The work is most fascinating, and success is easy if it is tackled in the right way.

Sea—II, The Struggle between land and sea on the Welsh Coast'
THE coast-line of a country is not a fixture for all time, and in this talk Professor Rees will indicate the changes which have been taking piaco along the coast of Wales over a period of some hundreds of years. He will tell of lost lands and forests, lost ports and villages, and the legends which have grown up around them.
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.
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.
