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.

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.

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.
