A further selection of tunes on unusual instruments
Presented by Raymond Glendenning
Raymond Glendenning presents another programme tonight containing some more kinds of ' musick' discovered in various parts of the province of Northern Ireland. Spoons and an accordion are among the unusual combinations he is to bring to the microphone. The others include an ocherina, a tin whistle, a harmonica, the Uillean pipes, and an Irish Ceilidh band.

from the Ulster Hall, Belfast
Choral music commands large audiences in Northern Ireland, and Belfast has a philharmonic choir that compares favourably with similar societies in other cities where resources arc greater. Tonight, however, listeners will hear a different kind of choral music altogether when the microphone goes to the Ulster Hall for the concert by the Waiata Maori Choir from New Zealand. These New Zealand choristers have delighted audiences wherever they have appeared. Traditional music and dances of their romantic race form a specially interesting part of their repertoire, and their concert should provide choral-music lovers with both entertainment and contrast.

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.
