A commentary on part of the performance arranged by The English Folk Dance and Song Society in the Memorial Theatre Gardens
Douglas Kennedy , the director of the Society, who was in charge of the first of the open-air dance parties in the floodlit gardens of the Memorial Theatre, Stratford, has now sailed to the United States. This second party is in the hands of Frank Howes , and the folk singing is supervised by Imogen Holst. In this fifteen - minute programme Neil Hutchison , who is at present in charge of outside broadcasts at Birmingham, will chat with one of the organisers, and the songs and the music for the dances-provided by a small orchestra and a melodeon player-should give listeners a vivid impression of the scene at this unusual event.
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.
