Anona Winn and her Winners

Synopsis

We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
From the age of eight Anona Winn could read music quickly, but even in her 'teens her hands were so small that she could never stretch an octave easily. So she gave up the idea of being a pianist, and studied singing at the Albert Street Conservatorium at Melbourne. When Apollo Granforte visited Australia she studied Rigoletto under the famous baritone. Then she ran away and joined a Melbourne company of The Merry Widow. She toured India, came to London, and did a tour with Jose Collins in A Greek Slave. All this experience has gone to make Anona Winn one of the most versatile artists on the air.

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.
