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.
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

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
