(Gaelic Songs)
It is an interesting fact that there has been extremely little complaint that the Gaelic-speaking people of Scotland get more than their share of programmes. Actually loss than 3 per cent. of the population of Scotland understands Gaelic. The proportion of time given to Gaelic programmes is somewhat higher. If possible,a special programme, in addition to other Highland elements, will be broadcast every week for the special pleasure of Highlanders.

: The Reid Orchestral Concerts

Relayed from
The Usher Hall., Edinburgh
Conductor, Sir DONALD F. TOVEY
Sir DONALD F. TOVEY (pianoforte)
This programme has several interesting features, the first of these being the inclusion of General Reid's march, written by the General Reid with whose name the Orchestra is associated. Secondly, the flute sonata is a recently discovered work by General Reid. It was known that he composed this, but the work was untraced until last summer, when Sir Donald Tovey received a communication from a ladv in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This lady is in possession of the manuscript of the sonata and on hearing of the Reid Orchestra and Professor Tovey, she sent across a photostat ot the sonata. It is not known how this sonata came to be in America, but the General fought at the battle of Ticonderoga in 1759. The programme also contains a new set of dances by Mozart, collected by Sir Donald.

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.
