Harriet Cohen has just returned from a successful tour of Palestine where she played in Tel Aviv, Haifa, and Jerusalem. When in the Near East she made a great impression on members of the Palestine Symphony Orchestra, who presented her with three pottery statuettes and a coffee set, all the work of modern artists in Palestine.
Harriet Cohen has been broadcasting for some twelve years now, and has fulfilled engagements over the air with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at Queen's Hall, with the Pro Arte Quartet, the Brosa Quartet, and with combinations at various contemporary music concerts. She has given recitals with Szigeti and Tertis, and has performed at innumerable studio concerts.
John Fullard started his career as a tenor soloist in Brecon Cathedral. He won a scholarship to the Royal College of Music, and gave his first broadcast in May last year from the Three Valleys Festival, Mountain Ash. Fullard has given recitals all over the country, and gave a remarkable performance in the part of the Rebel Leader in Hindemith's Mathis the Painter, which was heard for the first time in England on March 15 this year.

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.
