This is the first of an attractive musical series in which leading singers of the Midlands have been asked to prepare programmes of their favourite songs. The broadcasts will be very much more than a mere series of song recitals, as the singers themselves will introduce them, explain why they like the songs, and point out their merits from the accompanist's point of view as well as the singer's.

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.
