(contralto) with The BBC Orchestra
(Section C) led by Marie Wilson Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Muriel Brunskill , who possesses one of the truly great voices of the day, was born in Kendal, Westmorland. She studied singing with Madame Blanche Marchesi , and later went to Germany to make a special study of lieder.
She made her debut in London at the Æolian Hall, and two years later joined the British National Opera Company, with which she remained for five years. During this period she sang all the leading contralto roles. She made her first appearance in the Grand Opera Season at Covent
Garden as Amneris in Aida, in which rôle she created a sensation by her magnificent singing. Her triumphs in this country have been followed up by outstanding successes' in the United States, Australia, and Holland.

: BRAHMS

Serenade in D, Op. 11 played by The BBC Orchestra (Section C), led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Brahms's Serenade in D belongs essentially to the Haydn tradition: it is in fact a study in the classical style, even to the scoring, which includes, however, four horns instead of the customary two of the period.
The music is genial and high-spirited throughout, but of all the seven movements the most individual is the scherzo with its pleasing syncopations and effective use of the pause. The two minuets are both very charming, particularly the second, which has a delightfully melodious and flowing trio.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
