The folk song revival in England 4: No More Folk Songs
'No Nation has a richer store of traditional music than England, and none is more prone to undervalue its heritage.'
In 1922 Cecil Sharp , who had been in poor health for many years, died. Ralph Vaughan
Williams, although still deeply involved in folk music, ceased his collecting activities. Many of the young men who would have replaced them had been killed in the First World War.
The Folk Society struggled on, with most members holding the view that all the best folk songs had been collected.

Allegro ma non troppo
Italy is changing: support is ebbing both for the Church and for the Communist Party - the largest in Western Europe. But with a falling birthrate, a welfare state that doesn't work, the highest public debt and inflation in the EEC, Italy looks set for disaster. So why are Italians unmoved? Can the disaster be postponed indefinitely?

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.
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.
