: GRASS VALLEY AND ITS COLD-MINING SINGERS

Programme of gramophone records
In 1849 a group of immigrants, searching for their lost cattle, came by chance upon a valley so verdantly green that it was immediately christened ' Grass Valley '. There in the heart of Nevada County, California, gold was found, and within a year of its discovery the valley housed a flourishing little town and supported a thrivingpopulationofminerspanning gold. Great mining skill was, however, required, and in order to work the valley successfully miners were sent for from Cornwall. They settled in the valley, and their descendants have been there ever since, working with the skill of their tradition, and never forgetting their home culture, especially their songs. Some of the songs of the Cornish miners from California have been recorded, and it is these that you will hear this afternoon.

WINIFRED SMALL AND ORCHESTRA
Violin Concerto No. 1, in A minor......
Bach Bach 's concertos for a solo performer with orchestra were so often rearranged by his own hand for other instruments that only three concertos for violin have come down to us at the present day in their original form. All of them have slow movements which are among the most serenely beautiful music in existence, though the other movements of the No. I in A minor are a little more austere than some of his purely instrumental pieces.

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.
