Founded in 1928, the Parker-Crook
Trio is noted for its presentation of classical and light classical programmes. The present combination-one which has broadcast since June, 1935 - consists of Vera Parker-Crook (piano). Joan Fynney (violin), and Bernard Richards ('cello).
Vera Parker-Crook gained a scholarship at the Royal College of Music, and it was while she was a student that she broadcast from Savoy Hill with the Audrey Ford Trio. Joan Fynney has been with the trio since 1932 ; and Bernard Richards , of course, is a brilliant 'cellist, who, amongst other activities, plays for the International String Quartet.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
