: BBC ORCHESTRA

Conducted by Clarence Raybould
(First performance, conducted by the composer)
Fela Sowande. who is a member of the tribe of Yoruba from Abeokuta (sixty miles from Lagos, Nigeria). came to England in 1934 to study engineering He is now musical director of the Colonial Film Unit attached to the Ministry of Information and organist of the Kingsway Hall, Holborn.
(First performance)
Michael Moerane. a pure Basuto of the Bantu race, started as a teacher of African children but soon decided on a musical career. His aim was to write down the songs and dances of his own people, and because he was remote from musical centres he had to rely on his own initiative to acquire the rudiments of musical technique. He had never seen or heard a European orchestra. It was in the kraals of Basutoland that he first attempted a symphonic composition, in order to obtain his B.Mus. During his studies in the Music Department of Rhodes University College Grahamstown. he wrote his symphonic poem ' My Country,' which was the first European score to be written by a Basuto.

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.
