Market Prices, and Herring Fishing


by Pipe-Major William Ross
Pipe-Major William Ross could scarcely have avoided becoming probably the most admired and respected piper in Scotland. He was born in Glen Strathfarrar , Inverness-shire, in 1879, and when his father was not teaching him how to play, his mother acted as tutor, for she was as successful an exponent of the instrument as her husband. At seventeen Ross enlisted in the Scots Guards and took part in the South African War. In the Great War Pipe-Major Ross served his battalion from the beginning until June, 1918, when he was invalided out of the service. Now he is instructor at the Edinburgh Castle School for Army Pipers.

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
