: SOUTHERN HOLIDAY

A fantasy on Negro moods by Reginald Foresythe played by Henry Hall and his Dance Orchestra, with Reginald Foresythe at the piano on records
Reginald Foresythe , as well as being a first-class pianist and running his own dance band, has composed a great many works, some of which bear striking originality, as any will agree who have heard ' Serenade for a Wealthy Widow ', and ' The Autocrat before Breakfast '. ' Southern Holiday' is one of his longest works, and might be described as a tone poem of Negro life and spirit.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
