George Nash is gradually making his peace with the BBC Northern Ireland Orchestra, and it looks as though his threat to take off his coat to them one at a time, made at the first rehearsal, will not be carried out. At all events, the Orchestra are as much interested in the talks as are listeners, and they welcomed a charming little speech from George Nash before the first broadcast in the series, apologising in advance for any hard things he had to say.
This afternoon his musical pilgrimage continues, with James Denny to help him over stiles, and Walton O'Donnell and the Orchestra to play the musical illustrations.

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.
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.
