: 'AMERICA SINGS '

Programme of modern American folk song, arranged and presented by D. G. Bridson , including special recordings made in New York, by Josh White , Leadbelly, Burl Ives , Alan Lomax , Tom Glazer , and the Almanacs
Most people think of America as the country chiefly responsible for modern dance music or what they loosely (and quite wrongly) describe as jazz. But apart from the latest dance numbers which are sung and whistled in the streets of New York no less than in the streets of London, America has given us another popular music. Perhaps no other land has such a richness and variety of folk song or such a vital tradition of folk singing. In America Sings listeners will hear a collection of all types of American folk song, ranging from the Scottish Border ballad ' Sir Henry Martin ' (still sung in the Appalachian backwoods) to blues, spirituals, labour songs, chain-gang songs, and trade-union songs. Many have never before been broadcast in this country. Some of the singers tonight have already been heard in The Man who Went to War and The Martins and the Coys.

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.
