: ' CHILDREN'

From the point of view of a Grandmother
Listeners are to hear the point of view of a grandmother, both about children and about her own grandchildren. She will speak of the shocks for the grandmother in watching the mother of her first
grandchild. She learns the wisdom of silence-the responsibility is not hers. She will show how her own modern active life has changed her standpoint, though she necessarily views the coming generation in perspective. How long is a child a child -up to nursery age, up to school age or longer? It may well be that her daughter remains a child in her eyes even when her grandchildren are grown up. She will discuss education. the astonishing methods of the new education, the uninhibited baby who must never hear the words * Don't' or ' No '. But whatever she thinks of it all, she wishes the new generation good luck.

: BIG BILL CAMPBELL AND HIS HILLY-BILLY BAND

with JACK CURTIS and GERRY FITZGERALD
That genial Canadian, Bill Campbell , made his name with listeners when he presented that rollicking programme of the backwoods, ' The Rocky Mountaineers ', just over two years ago. So successful has it been that it has become a perennial event, blossoming several times a season.
On October 13 he presented his
Hilly-Billy Band, and it rang the bell with such effect that it is to broadcast every fortnight, giving current hilly-billy hits, reviving old hilly-billy favourites, and presenting one or two traditional hilly-billy tunes. The real hill-billy is the man from the backwoods of the Kentucky Mountains, a simple sort of man who never goes out into civilisation. But a hill-billy or hilly-billy song has come to be associated with cowboys, or more or less anyone Canadian or American for the matter of that.
Bill Campbell has been to infinite pains to get this band together. Instrumentalists had to be found who, in addition to their particular instrument. could play the tin whistle, the ocarina (or 'sweet potato'), or some novelty instrument like that. They took some finding, but he found them at last. Gerry FitzGerald and Jack Curtis are both Canadians. Bill Herbert has been in Canada a lot. Bill Campbell himself sings a bit, conducts the band, and comperes the show.
Listeners might make a note that
' The Rocky Mountaineers ' will be on the air again on November 4 and during the week of December 12.

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.
