: A Family Band

The second of six programmes about families who make music together.
Presented by Roy Castle and featuring
The Owens from North Wales.
Their house is called Hafod-y-Gan (House of Music), and three generations of Owens combine to make a fine family choir which can be heard in the chapel at Pwllglas, in the Fox and Hounds and in the beautiful Clwyd hills. Guiding light behind this close-knit family group is mother (and songwriter) CERI.
The Norrises from Worcester.
Another mother-leader, LAURIE NORRIS , gently encourages her six children to share her pleasure in music-making. Technical skill is not a priority in the Norris band, but enjoyment is. The film includes the first public performance of a composition by the eldest Norris - ROBERT - called ' A country dream'. Reporter JILL PHILLIPS

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.
