One of the most skilful and amusing styles of musical composition is parody. To achieve good parody requires great knowledge and understanding of the technical devices and idiosyncrasies of the composers to be parodied. Herbert Hughes , whose artistic arrangements of Irish melodies are so well known to listeners, has written a series of very clever and witty parodies of Nursery Rhymes which form the substance of this programme. ' These rhymes ', says Mr. Hughes, ' caricature a manner rather than one particular composer, reflect a period rather than a person.' Simple Simon in the style of Corelli, Wee Willie Winkie in style of Liza Lehmann , Georgie Porgie in style of Strauss, Doctor Foster-Handel.

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.
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.
