Allan Ramsay
Robert Fergusson
Reader, R. B. Wharrie
(From Glasgow)
Allan Ramsay and Robert Fergusson deserve to be remembered and read not merely because Burns admired and imitated both. Ramsay in particular did much for the revival of interest in Scottish poets of the past by making the first Scottish anthology, 'The Evergreen', and by writing simple and graceful songs in traditional Scottish forms at a time when the influence of Pope and other English poets was tending to kill originality in the writing of verse. During his brief career of twenty-four years, Robert Fergusson wrote many poems of a satirical nature, and it is easy to see how much he influenced his famous successor, Robert Burns.

by THE GLASGOW ORPHEUS
CHOIR
Conductor,
Sir HUGH S. ROBERTON
Relayed from
St. Andrew's Hall, Glasgow
The Glasgow Orpheus Choir will bear comparison with almost any other choir in existence, so far as the singing of madrigals, part songs, and folk songs is concerned. Many of these have been arranged by Sir Hugh S. Roberton , its distinguished conductor. Sir Hugh began his career as the trainer of a church choir and then became conductor of the Toynbee House Choir, Glasgow, a small body of singers who became the nucleus of the Orpheus. Sir Hugh is one of the originators and pioneers of the competitive festival movement in Scotland and is in great demand as an adjudicator in Scotland and England.

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

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
