DUNHILL, a distinguished former pupil of the Royal College of Music in London, where he held a Composition Scholarship, earned the gratitude of many of his fellow countrymen by a series of chamber music concerts which ho ran for several years. Their spacial object was to bring forward music of young native composers which, although already performed, was in danger of being forgotten. His own most important works, apart from some distinguished chamber music and many beautiful songs, are a set of variations on an original theme, dedicated to the memory of Sir Hubert Parry , and a Symphony. The former was played in 1922 at the Gloucester Festival, and the latter a year later at Bournemouth. It has also been hoard abroad. Dunhill gained a Carnegie Award in 1925 for his one-act Opera The Enchanted Garden, although the opera has not so far been adequately presented.
He has done notable work in teaching at Eton and elsewhere ; he has been examiner at the Royal College of Music, and is enthusiastic in the Music Competition Festival movement. Many of his cantatas, operettas, and smaller pieces for young people are valuable from the educational point of view, and he is the author of an important book on chamber music.

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.
