Last year the Midland Region broadcast a monthly series of English folk dances for the benefit of country-dancing societies. The programmes were so given that they could be danced to. This winter folk music is represented by a monthly series for the general listener.
For this Gerrard Williams , an authority on folk music and famous too for his arrangements for the BBC Military Band, has composed a number of medleys built up on folk tunes. He will provide a number of interesting annotations on the folk tunes represented. ,

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
