Ystalyfera is a coal and tinplate village in the Swansea Valley, well-known for many years as a bardic centre, for many winners of the National Eisteddfod Chair and Crown passed through their journey-man stage within a radius of six miles of Ystalyfera. The village is now better known for its vocalists and instrumentalists, for it has a big mixed choir, a male choir, a children's choir, two brass bands, and an orchestra. The Ystalyfera and District Choral Society, which listeners will hear tonight under its conductor, W. D. Clee, is perhaps the most remarkable choir in the history of the National Eisteddfod. Although a large number of the members are unemployed, they make great sacrifices in order to attend rehearsals.
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.
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.
