sung by James McCafferty (baritone)
James McCafferty has been regularly on the air since August, 1922, and was the first artist to broadcast from
Belfast in 1924. On the advice of the late
H. Plunket Greene , with whom he studied for six years, he devoted himself to the study of Irish songs. McCafferty has broadcast in the U.S.A. and Canada and is at present working on the script of an Irish film. He has earned for himself the reputation of being one of the greatest interpreters of Irish songs.

: - IN IT TOGETHER'

' Canada '
The first of a series of talks by people from other parts of the Commonwealth and Empire to remind us that we are all in this war for freedom together
It is incorrect to imagine we are alone in the struggle against Nazi tyranny: Great Britain, Canada, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, as well as India and the British Colonial Empire are all in it together.
On alternate Tuesdays' in this series members of the Dominion
Forces in this country will be interviewed by someone who knows.their Dominion well ; every other week, on Sundays, visitors from various parts of the British Colonial Empire will also be speaking of the lands from which they come. It is hoped in this way to illustrate the unity in diversity which is the surest token of the Empire's ultimate victory.

: GO TO IT 1 1-5

' Shipbuilding'
A progress report on Britain's industrial war drive
Produced by Alan Melville
This programme, the fifth in the series on industry's greatest speed-up, deals in particular with that river of ships-the Clyde.
The speed-up has not come suddenly to the Clyde: since the beginning of the war, and before, the Clyde yards have been working full time and overtime. But in these last few months the clang of riveting and the general pace of work in the yards has been increased on Clydeside. Tonight the men who have built-and are still building-the greatest ships in the world will tell of the speed-up in their own vitally important jobs.

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

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.
