Edric Connor (Singer of Negro Songs) with Monia Liter at the piano.

In February, 1944, a tall good-looking West Indian came to England from his native Trinidad to study structural engineering. His name was Edric Connor. In his luggage were notes on West Indian folk music which he had been studying and collecting for about ten years.
He had already broadcast from Trinidad and carried letters of introduction to the BBC. A fortnight after his arrival he sang two songs in a programme for West Indian listeners and two days later he broadcast a talk on Negro spirituals in the BBC's African Service.
His radio personality and appealing voice made a deep impression, and from then onwards he appeared regularly in BBC programmes. In 1945 he and Evelyn Dove gave a popular series of programmes of sweet music in the Negro style, under the title of Serenade in Sepia.
He was twenty-three before he discovered that he could sing. He comes from a musical family: his three sisters are all experienced singers.

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.
