Most people are aware of the part played by Devon and Cornwall in the discovery of the Western hemisphere. Fewer know that in the opening-up of the Near and Far East the English West Country also played a big part. It is of these less familiar achievements that Douglas Duff will speak. This first talk will cover the period of the Crusades.
H. E. Piggott
In this edition of the Folk-Song Almanack H. E. Piggott will talk about West Country folk songs particularly associated with the autumn months. The talk will be illustrated with folk songs sung by Doreen Greenwood and Frederick Harvey.
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.
