A Pianoforte Recital by Frank Merrick with songs by Bettine Young (soprano)
Hope Squire (1878-1936), who married Frank Merrick in 1911, studied the piano under Henry Gadsby and afterwards had some greatly valued lessons from Ernst von Dohnanyi and Tobias Matthay. But she never received systematic instruction in composition. What helped her most was her wide knowledge of the musical works of many periods. Partly because she was anxious to leave behind her nothing of second-rate quality her works were very limited.
The song was her main preoccupation as a composer, and even her two most important instrumental pieces, the piano variations on 'Black-eyed Susan' and the tone poem ' Tom Bowling', are both based on songs. She combines finish of workmanship with keen attention to the words, both as regards their lyrical structure and their meaning.

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.
