PEGGY COCHRANE (Violin) MYRA HESS (Pianoforte)


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.
TONIGHT we welcome Miss Myra Hess back from America-from the jaws of America, we almost said, for the leviathan nation is greedy of good artists and has a great power of absorption. But the London season also has its fascination upon those who perform in public, and London may now be glad that its attractions have again worked upon this London-born, London-trained and largely London-acclaimed pianist. Miss Hess stands high in the esteem of her fellow-musicians. There are no better regulated fingers than hers, but she has not permitted their advanced powers of dexterity to shape her career; they have played servant to her musicianship and her imagination, and it is as an artist of interpretation, of revealing expression and of all-round capacity that Miss Hess is known to both the narrower and the wider worlds of music-lovers.

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.
