Professor Scott Watson will sum up this evening on his survey of the countryside to inquire into the changes and crises that are affecting village life and agriculture, afforestation, fruit and hop growing, and kindred industries. He will devote his last broadcast of this series more to the future than to the past or present in an endeavour to find light among the darkness, and to indicate to listeners where it has been found.

JOHN MOREL (Baritone)
BRATZA (Violin)
In the years immediately after the War, when the roll call of the younger musicians, who are to be responsible for the immediate future of British music, was being taken, the name of Ivor Gurney was prominent. Gurney was born in 1890, was educated first as a chorister at
Gloucester Cathedral and at the Royal College of Music under Stanford and Vaughan Williams. He soon established a. reputation as a writer of songs, and he was amongst the earliest of that group of song-writers who rallied to the standard of A. E. Housman , the author of ' A Shropshire Lad ', and set his lyrics to music of the folk-song order in what was then almost a convention with composers. Gurney's merit, however, is not confined to songs of a stereotyped character, and although many of his published songs are settings of Housman's lyrics, he has drawn upon the verses of many poets, in many periods, with a catholic discrimination.

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.
