The Rev. W. F. MARSHALL
In this, the first of a series ofsix talks, Mr. Marshall is going to give us a general surrey of dialects, with particular reference to those to be found in Ulster. He will discuss their origin, their kinship with English and Scots dialects and the reasons for their preservation, in some cases almost completely, in their form of centuries ago.
Mr. Marshall, who has made a very careful study of the Ulster language, speaks with the voice of authority, and his talks should go far to refute the opinion held in some places that Ulster speaks with a barbarous and un-English tongue.
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.
