Relayed from
The Foster Hall, Bodmin The Looe Fishermen's Choir, conducted by Harold Mutton, is probably the only choir of its kind in the country, for it is composed of men who are directly connected with the fishing industry of the town. Among the members are those who build the luggers, the skippers and their crews
(the conductor is Skipper of The Seagull), those who buy and sell the fish, those who pack them into barrels, and the barrel makers themselves. The sea, however, has a changing time-table, and a practice with a full choir is very rare. On the other hand, small groups of fishermen are often to be seen on the quay or in the shelters trying over some line of music from the work they are studying. Although times have often been bad in the fishing industry the Looe Fishermen's Choir, by means of concerts, has collected hundreds of pounds for charities in the district. This Choir broadcast for the first time in the West Regional programme from the Foster Hall, Bodmin, on July 4.

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.
