Songs recorded in Nyasaland and presented by Peter Fraenkel of the Central African
Broadcasting Station, Lusaka
Peter Fraenkel has travelled many thousands of miles in the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland recording African music for transmission from Lusaka. This group from Nyasaland, recorded on a recent journey, includes songs that are sociologically as well as musically interesting; for, as often in Africa, the words, in various matters, urge compliance with the ways of society.

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.
