Neil McLean is affectionately remembered by thousands of listeners as the one-time Station Director of Aberdeen, and in particular for his delightful singing of Gaelic and Scottish folk songs. Lately he has been coming to the microphone more frequently and each succeeding occasion is looked forward to with keen anticipation by Scottish listeners. Neil has a deep knowledge of Gaelic and Gaelic culture, and almost invariably wears the kilt.

Mr. Swainson began his professional career in Harrogate and went to Aberdeen in 1916 as organist of Queen's Cross Church. He was the founder of the Aberdeen Oratorio Choir which broadcasts tonight, and there are few musical activities in Aberdeen which do not owe something to Mr. Swainson's active help or enthusiasm.
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.
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.
