: 'GEORGIAN SUMMER'

A Miscellany of Poetry with Music
Devised and presented by James Fergusson
To evoke a picture of the Elysian landscape imagined by the Augustan poets and their successors is the aim of ' Georgian Summer ', which is a miscellany of eighteenth-century poetry with music. This programme will conjure up the pastoral scene which these poets loved to depict-a background of trees, flocks, and herds, with shepherds and shepherdesses in the middle distance, and in the foreground a purling brook and a pair of lovers.
A few famous writers such as Pope, Burns, Gray, and Goldsmith, have been called upon for contributions, but other author less familiar have not been overlooked.
The verse to be heard in this programme is chosen in equal proportions from English and Scottish writers over a period of about eighty years, and is accompanied by music taken from an early string quartet of Haydn.

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.
