A Programme from his Works in celebration of the 177th Anniversary of his Birth
See top of cols. 2 and 3 This is the third programme to be broadcast this week in commemoration of Scotland's national poet. It consists mainly of the poet's songs, chosen by Professor H. J. C. Grierson as examples of the diversity of his genius as a song writer.
His great poem, ' Tarn o' Shanter ', which not only thousands of enthusiastic Scots but many equally enthusiastic Englishmen know by heart, will be spoken by Andrew Stewart , the BBC Programme Director in the Scottish Region, while Professor Grierson himself will talk about Burns. The many students who passed through Professor Grierson's hands when he was at Aberdeen and Edinburgh will look forward with keen anticipation to his remarks.

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.
