Records of Isobel Baillie (soprano)
Isobel Baillie is a Scot, though she has spent most of her life in Manchester, where she has established herself as one of the most prominent sopranos in the North. She made her first appearance in London in 1923, making such a success that the engagement was speedily followed by six others at Queen's Hall. She has sung all over the British Isles, and has toured Canada and the United States, making her American debut at the world-famous Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles. She has broadcast frequently during recent years.

Recent compositions of his include ' Oasis ' and ' Mirage ', popular band numbers now being frequently broadcast. Ode to an Anderson another of his compositions which has been heard on the air, was written by Eric Winstone in an Anderson shelter and finished just before the All Clear.

: BBC SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA

Leader, J. Mouland Begbie
Conductor, Guy Warrack
When Glinka stayed in Madrid in 1845. he recorded in a note-book the folk melodies of singers and guitarists who were brought to his fiat in the evenings. One of his chief sources was a muleteer, two of whose songs, seguidillas marchegas, he used in this orchestral piece.
' A summer night in Madrid ', originally called ' Recuerdos de Castilla ', is a brilliant pot-pourri on four Spanish melodies, written in 1848 for the Governor of Warsaw's private orchestra. In addition to the two seguidillas, Glinka used a jota tune and the well-known ' Punto Moruno '. Glinka was always a superb orchestrator and ' A summer night in Madrid ' is one of his most masterly scores.

: ' ULSTER-AMERICAN SONGS'

Collected by Sam Henry and sung by James McCafferty and Mary Johnston
Many Ulstermen who emigrated to America took their songs with them, and in their new home sang and played the folk tunes of their native land ; but they did not always remember them or sing them in the same way as their compatriots at home. It is the American version of these old Irish songs that James McCafferty and Mary Johnston will sing this evening.

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.
