Leader, Louis LEVITUS
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.

: Professor WILLIAM REES: ' Hostages of the

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.

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.
