As in his songs, the same qualities of fresh, natural melody can be heard throughout Quilter's ' Children's Overture.' The nursery rhymes upon which it is based are: Boys and Girls, come out to play '; ' Upon Paul's steeple stands a tree '; ' Dame, get up and bake your pies '; ' I saw three ships come sailing by '; ' Sing a song of sixpence '; ' There was a lady loved a swine '; ' Over the hills and far away'; The frog and the crown '; ' A frog he would a-wooing go '; ' Baa-baa, black sheep '; ' Here we go round the mulberry bush'; 'Oranges and lemons '.
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.
