MARY-KAY (contralto)
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.

Tom WHITTAKER : What the Dressing-room means to Football'
This evening's talk is to be given by the man who has played no small part in the great success achieved by the Arsenal-Tom Whittaker , their trainer ; and it is concerned with the dressing-room, and everything that the dressing-room implies.
For, just as the modern trainer, whether of footballers or boxers or greyhounds, must be conversant with the latest scientific methods to cure an injury, so the modern dressing-room must supply them.
Ultra-violet rays and electrical baths and all the rest of it. The sprained ankle, the pulled groin muscle, the leg enfeebled by an operation-all these respond to the modern trainer's gadgets, and a man may now be back in the team in days instead of weeks, and play the same season instead of being on the shelf until the following year.
But it must always be remembered that, thanks to that key-man of the team-the trainer-a professional footballer is so fit that he can recover from a collision on the football ground that would take most of the spectators to hospital for a month. The trainer runs out with his little bag, applies a cold water spray to the back of the player's neck, or massages the injured part, or pours whiskey into his boot to keep the injured ankle warm and prevent swelling, and in seconds the player limps back to the game. It is next day that the trouble comes-especially in the case of a player who has lost the resilience of youth ; and it is then that the magic of the dressing-room comes in.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
