: PIPING, FIDDLING, AND SINGING

This programme gives an interesting survey of traditional Irish melodies and modern compositions in the same vein. The earliest published specimens of Irish folk-music appeared in the ' Fitzwilliam Virginal Book', but it was not till near the end of the eighteenth century that Irish folk-music was collected in bulk by Edward Bunting. Thomas Moore 's famous ' Selection of Irish Melodies', with his own words to the airs, came out in ten parts between 1808 and 1934.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
