Though the songs in the present programme are not Students' Songs in the same sense as would be a similar programme of German music, they serve the same purpose. Actually, many of them are folk songs, one is a shanty, another a nursery rhyme, and practically all are traditional. Of their value as music, whoever sings them and however they are sung, one has only to note the names of those who have sponsored, or, as it is called, arranged them. In the whole day's programmes there is nothing to touch this half-hour for sheer musical worth.
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.
