' Gaelic Today, and the Mod '
Relayed from The Playhouse, Oban
Sheriff McMaster Campbell is a veteran in the cause of Gaelic. There are few people who could speak more eloquently and with greater knowledge of the fight that has been put up for the last thirty years or so to preserve the ancient heritage of the Gaelic language.

: An Excerpt from The Grand Concert

of the Thirty-Eighth National Mod,
Relayed from
The Playhouse, Oban
The Mod is to the Highlands of Scotland what the National Eisteddfod is to Wales. Each year in September, Highland folk gather together from all parts of the British Isles and sometimes even from abroad. There are competitions for choirs, soloists, verse speakers, story tellers and clarsach players, and each year some choir, bard or singer remains king of their particular class, until next year's competition comes round again. The Mod, however, is more than a competition. It is a real festival of Gaelic, and the town in which it is held (a different one each year) suddenly becomes Gaelic-speaking for the few days of the Mod—so great is the influx of singers and story tellers come together to celebrate in their own happy and highland way the survival of one of the oldest languages in Europe. The relay tonight is from the concluding concert, at which the prize-winners will appear.

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.
