Emlyn Jones (baritone) Rachel Evans started singing in public when she was eight years old and since then she has won over 120 prizes.
Emlyn Jones has frequently broadcast from Cardiff and Swansea, his first appearance before the microphone being in 1924. Two of his most outstanding broadcasts were as soloist in the first broadcast performance of ' Ystafell Cynddylan' (Vaughan Thomas ) and in the first broadcast performance of ' Alun MaHon ' (Idris Lewis ). Listeners will remember that he also sang in the memorial broadcast to the late Dr. Caradoc Roberts.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
