: BURNS AND HIS RIVERS

A programme devised by Joe Corrie
'Th' Ilissus, Tiber, Thames, an' Seine Glide sweet in mony a tunefu' line; But, Willie, set your fit to mine,
An' cock your crest,
We'll gar our streams an'burnies shine
Up wi' the best'
(Burns)

Music arrangements by David Stephen
Production by John Gough
In his letter in verse to William Simpson , Burns gave expression to his poetic ambitions, among which he included that stated in the stanza above. He had noted how Forth and Tay had been sung by Ramsay and Ferguson and, in particular, that Yarrow and Tweed were known all over Scotland by virtue of the poetry written about them. But nobody sang about Irwin, Lugar, Ayr, and Doon. Tonight's programme will show how splendidly his ambition was realised.
Joe Corrie , who has written the programme, began life as a miner and first became known to the public as a poet. Laying down the pick for the pen, he gave himself to literature and is now one of the best known dramatists in Scotland.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
