' A River Bank in Spring'
C. C. GADDUM
The river bank and water meadows are some of the first places where animals are to be seen after the winter. Today Mr. Gaddum is to take his listeners for a walk along a typical English stream. The time is spring, male peewits are wheeling overhead, while in the meadows below the females are busily preparing their nests. Frogs are heard croaking in the rushes, and the first frog-spawn is to be seen in the stagnant pools ; one or two early insects are to be seen disporting themselves in the early March sunshine, and in the reeds the wild duck are indulging in courtship displays.

Ⓓ Poets and Poetry-Tom Moore '
STEPHEN POTTER
The following from Tom Moore 's
Irish Melodies will be read :
' The Harp that once through Tara's
Halls'
' The Minstrel Boy '
' Let Erin remember the days of old '
' The young May moon is beaming,
Love '
Stephen Potter is going to talk about poems written to be sung. Tom Moore was a favourite writer of this kind of poem. He was an Irishman, and very interested in the old tunes for the Irish Harpists, and he began to adapt them and write new words for them to be sung to. The programme will include two dramatic scenes — one illustrating the influence of Ireland and Irish politics on Moore ; and another showing Moore's success as a writer of songs in Dublin and London.

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.
