by Roy Henderson (baritone)
Vaughan Williams's fondness for the countryside and its songs is well known. Besides collecting many folk tunes, he has written country songs of his own, some in the folk idiom and the others, like the ' Songs of Travel ', expressing in his own personal style his love of the open road. He has set R. L. Stevenson 's robust verses with fine understanding and sympathy and has given us something typically British in its healthy virility and underlying charm.

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.
