: ROBIN HOOD'

Ⓓ A Tale of Sherwood Forest, written by D. F. Aitken
Music by Robert Chignell
The Orchestra (Leader Victor Olof ) and a section of the BBC Male Voice Chorus conducted by Robert Chignell
Production by Pascoe Thornton
(Empire Programme)
Robin Hood is one of the sprightlier characters in English history; and although it requires considerable research into old ballads and ancient books to discover the facts about his mmm his exploits must at all costs avoid the heavy archæological manner.
D F. Aitken 's script has certainly done this-he himself calls it a ' medieval romp ’—and Robert Chig nell's music will add to the fun.

(1550-1650)
Ralph Downes (organ)
A Brass Section of the BBC
Military Band
Conducted by Denis Wright
The period about 1600 is known to most English people as the time when a peak was reached in choral composition in this country, as represented by the motets and madrigals of men like Byrd and Wilbye (whose tercentenary falls this year). In Italy, however, there was growing up a school whose chief interest and achievement lay in the instrumental field, and it is the work of this group that is to be represented in this week's Special Recital series.
Further programmes in the series will be broadcast on Wednesday (Regional, 8.0), Thursday (National,
6.40), Friday (National, 10.20), and Saturday (Regional, 8.40).

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.
