A Sonata Recital


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.
ELSIE OWEN (violin)
HARRY ISAACS (pianoforte)
Harry Isaacs began to learn the piano at the age of seven. Eventually he entered the Royal Academy of Music and studied under Tobias Matthay and Frederick Corder. He is now Professor and Examiner at the Academy. As a soloist he has appeared in many recitals and concerts. Mr. Isaacs is particularly keen on chamber music and has played sonatas with Lionel Tertis , William Primrose , and Jean Pougnet , and piano quintets with the Griller String Quartet.
Elsie Owen , who was born at Llanelly, was a composition pupil of Sir John B. McEwen at the Royal Academy of Music and her professor for violin was the late Hans Wessely. Miss Owen had a successful career at the Academy, winning the Sainton Scholarship and a number of important prizes. In 1924 she was elected a Fellow and Professor of the Academy. Miss Owen is well-known as a soloist in London and the provinces and also in Italy, where she toured and gave special programmes of British contemporary music. Her connection with broadcasting began in the early days of Marconi House. It is interesting to note that her husband is Professor Lloyd James , linguistic adviser to the BBC and Secretary of the BBC Committee on Spoken English.

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.
