A Radio Album of Recorded
American Folk Song
No. I-Introduction
Compiled and presented by Alistair Cooke
This series will consist of twelve programmes by Alistair Cooke , the plan of which is to sketch the history of the United States through its songs and singers. He explains the series and how he gathered the material for it in an article on page 7.
After leaving Cambridge he spent two years in America and returned to England to give broadcast talks on the cinema. He gave them for the record period of three years, in addition to arranging such popular programmes as ' American Half-Hours ', ' The American Negro ' and an anthology of hobo songs.
Cooke went back to America to broadcast over there, and now he has come over again for three months to give this series.

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.
