: An Indian Programme

(Arranged in co-operation with the India Society, London)
It is the intention of this programme to give listeners, in a necessarily brief space, an impression of the life, music and literature of India. The programme will be introduced by the Rt. Hon. the Earl of Ronaldshay, G.C.S.I., with a talk on India. Lord Ronaldshay will also introduce each subsequent item. Indian music will be represented by a group of folk songs - A Tamil Song (Tarasa Saukum ), a Sinhalese Song (Mata Badagini) and a Nepali Song (Ranee Banai Ma) - sung by Devar Suriya-Sean, assisted by his wife Suriya-Sena Devi (piano) and a tabla (drum) accompaniment. He has arranged these songs himself and will accompany himself, first on the violin, then on the sarangi, one of India's oldest instruments, the grandfather of the violin. The sarangi has a sweeter, slightly deeper tone than the violin; this is the first occasion on which it has been broadcast. The folk songs will be followed by selections from the Poems of Rabindranath Tagore, read in English. Next, Mr. Edward Thompson, author of An Indian Day, etc., will give a brief talk on the People of India. The programme will conclude with a further selection of native music.

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.
