: SONGS OF BRITISH SEAMEN

' Forebitters and the Spanish
Armada'
H. E. Piggott
The songs of British seamen, as Mr. Piggott will explain, are as various in kind as British seamen themselves. There are the shanties and the forebitters-the folk songs of the sea; the innumerable ballads and songs about sea-fights or sea-life, generally written by professional ballad-makers to existing tunes, but sometimes by seamen themselves ; and, perhaps the best known of all, the ‘sea-songs’ of such dramatists and composers as Gay, Dibdin, and Braham, songs that were seldom sung afloat.

Investigates'
7—‘ Kidnapped ' by Noreen Scott and Stella
Reichenberg
(Adapted by Hans W. Priwin )
This week Inspector Hornleigh's problem has been supplied by two thirteen-year-old schoolgirls, who, inspired by the Inspector's previous investigations, determined to try their hands at play-writing. Encouraged by the success of a performance of their play at a school concert, these young playwrights submitted their script to the BBC. Hans W. Priwin , the creator of Inspector Hornleigh, adapted their script for the microphone, and tonight listeners are once again to be given a chance of spotting the criminal's mistake, and later of comparing their deductions with those of Inspector Hornleigh.

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

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.
