Herbert Heyner (baritone)
Eileen Ralph (pianoforte)
Herbert Heyner
One of the most distinguished of British baritones, Herbert Heyner , has appeared at more than twenty seasons of Promenade Concerts, sung principal baritone at all the leading provincial festivals, and also appeared in opera at Covent Garden. He is an extraordinarily versatile artist, for in addition to oratorio and opera he has distinguished himself as a singer of French songs and German lieder. Nor has he neglected British composers ; he has done much to make known the songs of Delius, Elgar, and Dame Ethel Smyth.
Eileen Ralph
Eileen Ralph was born in Perth, West Australia. She began her musical studies at an early age and gained her Associated Board Scholarship at sixteen. At the Royal Academy of Music she won distinctions for piano, singing, and composition, including the Macfarren Gold Medal. She gave her first recital at the Wigmore Hall in 1934. She has since broadcast many times and appeared at orchestral and other important concerts in the provinces. She specialises in the performance of contemporary music.

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.
