: THE NORTHERN STUDIO ORCHESTRA

Directed by JOHN BRIDGE
(North Regional Programme)
MRS. (MARJORY) KENNEDY-
FRASER spent much time during her life in the islands of the Hebrides collecting the Gaelic folk-songs which had found their last, refuge there. Her musical life began at the age of twelve, when she travelled with her father on his singing tours, acting as his accompanist. After his death, she practically devoted herself to collecting, singing and making known the beautiful Hebridean songs which in the collections she published from time to time form her monument. She wrote the libretto for Sir Granville Bantock s opera The Seal Woman, the music of which was largely founded on melodies from her collections.

Theresa Gordon (Mezzo-Soprano)
As every child knows, a book for children is a very different thing from a book about children, and the distinction is equally marked in music. Many composers, in attempting to catch the ears of the children, have merely titillated the emotions of their guardians, and while Bizet's music to this suite, for which a supplementary title is 'Children's Games,' is rather of the latter order, there is no question that Schumann's Scenes of Childhood is of the former. Of other children's suites, there are Elgar's 'Wand of Youth' and 'Nursery Suite,' Debussy's 'Children's Corner,' collections of pieces by Mussorgsky and, indeed, most of the Russians, and even one by Stravinsky. But children, particularly modern children, are not easy to catch. They will snap at tho most unlikely flies, while a composer may bait his hook with the utmost cunning and never get a bite.

Over the Hills and far away The Wiltshire Wedding Lilli Borlero
The gentle Maiden Robinson Crusoe
Pretty Polly Oliver
St. Patrick was a Gentleman 0 tho Oak and the Ash Yankee Doodle Old King Cole
IN origin probably not one of these songs has anything to do with students. ' 'Yankee
Doodle,' for one, has not. It was an old English cpuntry dance, printed as such and borrowed, as was the custom, by Dibdin and others to pad out their little hot-pot operettas. long before it went to America. and became nationalized. Nor has Lilli Berlero , the tune of which is attributed to Purcell. Apparently, it was originally a ' quickstep,' but an Irish Protestant, who, in 1687 had written some doggerel verses protesting against some Catholio appointment, saw its possibi lities. The lilting tune and the silly verses quickly spread through the whole army and the entire population, to the extent of actually
. influencing politics. The words Lilli Berlero bullen—a—la have no meaning. They are just a jolly-sounding pieoe of nonsense.

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.
