GIRALDUS CAMBRENSIS, who journeyed through Wales with Bishop Baldwin in 1188, tells us that what we should now call 'Community Singing,' and what is thought by many to be a new movement recently introduced from abroad, was much practised in Wales over seven hundred years ago. We are also told by the same writer that Welsh Community Singing was then, as it has remained until today, always in parts.
During the last hundred years the ' Cymanfa Ganu ,' or Welsh Community Singing Meeting, has almost wholly been in connection with the chapel or church, with the result that few songs are so well known to Welsh singers as the old Welsh hymn tunes. In this Concert at Rhos, however, which is held in connection with no particular religious organization, Welsh National Airs and Folk-Songs are being introduced in full harmony, in addition to some of the best-known Welsh hymn tunes.

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.
