by Augustus Beddie
'A Sprig of Appleringie ' (Cute
McCheyne) by Joseph Laing Waugh
Long before broadcasting was heard of in this country, Augustus Beddie was a popular artist with concert audiences in nearly every part of Scotland.
His insight into Scottish character, his knowledge of the vernacular, and his ability to feel and reproduce the atmosphere of any particular sketch or recitation are his qualities as a performer.
It must be many years since he first told the pretty sentimental story of ' A Sprig of Appleringie' with its Edinburgh setting. Joseph Laing Waugh is the author he favour* most, though Ian MacLaren provides him with suitable material.
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.
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.
