: SONGS OF BRITISH SEAMEN

' Pirate Songs '—1
H. E. Piggott
Singer, Frederick Harvey
Listeners who remember the six talks given by H. E. Piggott on this subject in 1937 will welcome his reappearance at the microphone to give the first of a further six similar broadcasts. These talks will be illustrated by a number of songs, some of which are familiar and some of which will be heard for the first time' for many years. The musical tradition of the sea will in fact be presented.
Forthcoming broadcasts will include two of sea shanties and one of folk songs. The songs will be performed by a leader and a small chorus, and should sound exactly as they should sound when performed at sea. They will be unaccompanied.

: A RADIO DARTS MATCH

North v. South
The Brown Cow Inn, York plays
The Ark, Maidenhead
Commentators, R. Ingham at York and Charlie Garner at Maidenhead
A week or two ago the darts team of The Star and Garter, Kentish Town, took on all comers in a great radio match. A number of teams were successful in beating The Star and Garter, and the team of The Ark, Maidenhead, which did so by the biggest margin, will tonight be matched in a straight fight with The Brown Cow Inn of York, winners of the Yorkshire Area Competition for the Lonsdale Cup.
Each team will be playing on its home ground, and will be able to hear through its radio$et exactly what is happening at the other end. Three ' legs ' of a thousand-and-one will be played, finishing, but not starting, on a double.

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.

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.
