: Folk Song and the Concert Singer

'One regrets that so few concert singers include folk songs in their repertory. The reason is, I think, that many singers have a superficial acquaintance with folk songs, and mistake simplicity of expression for insignificance of content.'
As a tribute to Maud Karpeles , who died last month, a repeat of this programme in which she discusses the problems of performing traditional music on the concert platform; with illustrations sung by THOMAS HEMSLEY , accompanied by PAUL HAMBURGER

: The Composer in Jazz

Jazz is essentially an art of performance in which the composer has to create a framework involving the improvising soloist. In this series of seven programmes Charles Fox examines how the role of the jazz composer has developed from the 1920s until the present day, and he shows how individual composers have tackled the problem. 6: Gil Evans
It was his collaboration with Miles Davis that first brought him critical acclaim. He then went on to compose for a variety of ensembles, paying particular attention to texture and sound. His more recent work has been for groups including rock musicians and electric instruments.

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.
