: MODERN ENGLISH SONGS

sung by Sinclair Logan (baritone)
Sinclair Logan , singer, organist, teacher, and composer, was born in Cheshire in 1897. He is. partly Scottish and partly Irish, and was educated at Worcester College and the Royal Normal College for the Blind.
His first public appearances after the last war were with Lady Pear-son's Concert Party, which collected so many thousands of pounds for St. Dunstan's. He contrives to make one unaware of his handicap of sightlessness. Indeed he has made himself independent of it, travelling alone to wherever his profession calls him. even spending his holidays climbing in the Alps.

: 'BEYOND VIMY'

A feature programme for Canada's Dominion Day, written by Eric Gibbs and H. Rooney Pelletier
'Produced by H. Rooney Pelletier
The Canadian War Memorial at Vimy Ridge, two vast pylons which shadow the symbolic figure of a Canadian mother, stands upon ground given to Canada by the Government of France. In the minds of all Canadians the Memorial is something more than a monument to their dead-it is a symbol of Canadian courage and enterprise.
The men of Canada are with Great Britain again, and many, those in the Canadian Navy and the Royal Canadian Air Force, have been at grips with the enemy. The Army, meanwhile, is eagerly awaiting its chance to carry on the spirit of Vimy.
These are the facts which
Eric Gibbs and H. Rooney Pelletier wiil embody in their programme...Pelletier, by the way, was sent by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to France to give the commentaries at the dedication of the Memorial before King Edward VIII and President Lebrun. He had then the formidable task of giving commentaries in both French and English.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
