Moneymore, County Derry
Tonight's concert from Moneymore, Co. Londonderry, follows the idea behind the successful broadcast of a country concert from Ballycastle early in July. In the series of programmes known as Provincial Journey, which were broadcast monthly a year or so ago, local musical talent in the bigger towns and cities was brought to the microphone and created much enthusiasm and interest in the places concerned. These country concerts, of which tonight's is the second, are intended to, fulfil the same functions in the remoter villages and rural districts.
G. F. Combe , who is in charge of this concert is an Ulster man who knows his country thoroughly. The artists, with two exceptions, are residents of Moneymore and the surrounding districts.
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.
