'Summer'
H. E. Piggott
' Six months I now have named,
The seventh is July,
Come, lads and lasses, gather The scent'd hay to dry,
All full of mirth and gladness To turn it to the sun
And never cease, till daylight sets, And alI the work is done.'
In this edition of the Folk Song Almanack, H.E. Piggott will talk about West Country folk songs that are particularly associated with the summer months. The talk will be illustrated with folk songs sung by Doreen Greenwood and Frederick Harvey.

: An Excerpt from A PROGRAMME OF AMERICAN MUSIC

The Swiss Radio Orchestra
Conductor, Hermann Scherchen from Zurich
Aaron Copland is well known to British listeners, for he has on several occasions broadcast from the studio as a pianist. 'Music for Radio ' is an interesting experiment in writing music specifically for the microphone. It was originally commissioned by the Columbia Broadcasting Company of America. Aaron Copeland, who was born in 1900 in Brooklyn, New York, studied both in America and in Europe with Nadia Boulanger. In 1925 he was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship and in 1928 his 'Dance' Symphony gained the $5.000 R.C.A. Victor Prize. In June his symphonic poem 'El Salon Mexico' was conducted by Sir Adrian Boult in the last Queen's Hall concert of the Festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
