: 1,000 Welsh Voices

On the eve of St David's Day

Whenever Welshmen meet, they sing. And when nearly 1,000 members of male voice choirs leave the hills of North Wales and the slate quarries of Bethesda to join the London Welsh Choir at the Royal Albert Hall, they make a sound unequalled even in this most emotive form of singing.
Other Welshmen and enthusiasts of male voice choirs have come from all over Britain to this the Second Festival of 1,000 Welsh Male Voices organised by the London Welsh Association Male Voice Choir.
They come to listen to some of the finest male singing voices that Wales can produce and to one girl, the attractive young soloist Anne Howells.
Cliff Morgan introduces the concert and interviews the conductor, 32-year-old Roy Bohana from Caernarvon.


Presenter: Cliff Morgan
Singers: The London Welsh Choir
Soloist: Anne Howells

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
