: 'Cats Mostly Practical'

Some unpublished poems by T. S. Eliot read by Geoffrey Tandy.

On Christmas Day and at the end of January, and again in April and May were broadcast selections from a series of poems on cats which
T S. Eliot has written for the amusement and instruction of his friends' children. These poems proved such excellent broadcasting material and were so well received that another selection is to be broadcast of poems of a kind not usually associated with the name of their author. They have not yet been published.

(Section F)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Joseph Lewis
Hamish MacCunn (1868-1916), one of the most gifted composers that Scotland has produced, studied at the Royal College of Music under Sir Hubert Parry until 1886. In the following year he came into real prominence as a composer with his concert overture ' Land of the Mountain and the Flocd '. The poetic basis of the music is the passage from Scott's ' Lay of the Last Minstrel', which begins:-
0 Caledonia stem and wild, Meet nurse for a poetic child
Land of brown heath and shaggy wood! Land of the mountain and the flood !
Land of my sires 1 What mortal hand Can e'er untie the filial band
That knits me to thy rugged strand ?

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.
