H. E. Piggott and Doreen Greenwood
In no part of England have the music and folk songs of the old village life been more carefully recorded and preserved than in the West. Many of these songs are closely linked with the seasons-often, indeed, they are identified with the activities of a particular month. H. E. Piggott will be recalling some of these traditional songs on or near the first day of every month throughout the year and each talk in the series will be illustrated by selections - from the songs.
In the first talk the singer is
Doreen Greenwood , accompanied at the piano by H.E. Piggott himself.
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.
