The Bonnie Lighthorseman The Coach and Six
The Maiden's Garden A Case of Needles Patrick 's Farewell
I designed to say ' No ' but mistook and said ' Yes' (A Garland of English Folk Songs)

Doris Nichols first broadcast in 1924 as an official ' Aunt' at the Leeds-Bradford station. She came to live in Birmingham in 1934, and has taken part in a number of Midland plays and musical productions since.
She knew Frank Kidson , who collected the songs she is to sing this evening, personally, and was associated with him as far back as 1926 when he wrote a programme entitled ' A Yorkshire Evening Party of I860', which was produced at the old Leeds-Bradford Relay Station. Since then she has done two recitals of his songs from his own collection ' Peasant Songs of England' from North Regional, one in 1930 and one Jast year.
Frank Kidson was one of the pioneers who formed the Folk Society in 1898.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
