Ⓓ From page 29 of ' New Every Morning '

: FOLK-SONG ALMANACK

'January '
H. E. Piggott and Doreen Greenwood
(Western Programme)
In no part of England have the music and folk songs of the old Village life been more carefully recorded and preserved than in the West. Many of these songs are closely linked with the seasons-often indeed they are identified with the activities of a particular month.
H. E. Piggott will be recalling some of these traditional songs on or near the first day of every month throughout the year, and each talk in the series will be illustrated by elections from the songs.
In this first broadcast the singer is Doreen Greenwood , accompanied at the piano by Mr. Piggott himself.

: THE COMMODORE GRAND ORCHESTRA

Leader, Charles Vorzanger
Directed by Harry Davidson from the Commodore Theatre,
Hammersmith
This popular orchestra, which Harry Davidson took over from Joseph Muscant in 1934 has been continuously broadcasting for eight and a half years. It is sad to think that this is the last broadcast from the Commodore Theatre, but Davidson is retaining his band. He is taking it on tour and it is hoped that it will be heard by listeners many times again.

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.
