7 The Cloudy Heights of Tatra sung by Eric Greene (tenor)
Some of Dvorak's best songs are written in the folk-song idiom-the Moravian Duets, for instance. Certainly one of the most charming series is the seven ' Gypsy Songs ', Op. 55, which appeared in 1880. Each one embodies an expressive little poetic idea which is worked out in a fanciful and picturesque manner and with finished artistry. Particularly attractive are ' Silent Woods ', the well-known ' Songs my mother taught me ', and ' The Cloudy Heights of Tatra '.


Tenor: Eric Greene

An appeal on behalf of THE POPLAR Hospital by the Rt. Hon. GEORGE LANSBURY, M.P.
The Poplar Hospital was established in 1855 to meet the needs of a growing population. At that time Poplar was connected to the City by a single line of houses along East India Dock Road and Commercial Road, and it has become one of the most highly industrialised districts of London.
The Hospital has made immense efforts to provide for the needs of an ever-growing population, and it is now milking this wider appeal because, situated as it is in the heart of the docks, it serves the men who handle the goods and merchandise that pass through the Port, upon which all London is dependent.
At present it is planning to provide better accommodation and higher remuneration for the nursing staff, and to provide a special ward for the better treatment of fractures.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to The Rt. Hon. George Lansbury , M.P., [address removed]

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.
