Charles Wakefield Cadman (born 1881) is of the younger school of American composers. He has found interest and inspiration in the music of the American Indians. His one-act Indian Opera, Shanewis, has been performed at the New York Metropolitan Opera.
Adoph Jensen was a great enthusiast for Schumann's music, and his many songs show that he took his great contemporary as a model. His muse was neither profound nor wide-ranging, but grace and refinement, with honest sentiment, are always to be found in his songs.

(English Folk Songs from the Appalachian Mountains)
AWAY in the Southern Appalachian Mountains of America, in a secluded part of the country, lives a simple, pastoral people, illiterate but alert, descendants of British emigrants in the late eighteenth century. They havo a fine store of Folk Songs which both young and old sing freely. (In England scarcely anyono under seventy sings these songs.)
Tho late Cecil Sharp took down from their lips four hundred and fifty tunes, in a tour he made in 1916. Most of these are in 'gapped' scales, having five or six notes to the octave. The Dear Companion is a good example of such a melody. It is the song of a maiden whose lover has left her for another.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
