Irvinestown, County Fermanagh
In the series of programmes called ' Provincial Journey', which were broadcast monthly a year or so ago, local musical talent in the bigger towns and cities of Northern Ireland was brought to the microphone, and created much interest and enthusiasm in the district concerned. This series of ' Country Concerts ' is intended to fulfil a similar function in fostering music in the remoter villages and rural districts.
Already programmes have been broadcast from Ballycastle and Moneymore. Tonight the microphone goes to Irvinestown, in County Fermanagh, for a concert by artists who live in that part of the county. Unlike others, which have provided a choir, tonight's concert consists entirely of soloists, and includes a pianist, a baritone, a siffleur, and a mezzo-soprano.
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.
