Despite Stanford's extensive teaching and conducting activities, he found time to write an enormous amount of fine music, including operas, symphonies, chamber works, and songs. Much of his work has an Irish flavour, as is only natural with a man who had more knowledge than any musician living of the folk-music of his native country. Indeed, the ' Petrie Collection of Irish Music', which Stanford edited, is the standard authority. In all his music he displays keen melodic invention and craftsmanship of the highest order.
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

- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
