BORN at Clifton, Bristol, in 1886, Mr. Frank
Merrick studied pianoforte playing with Leschetizky in Vienna. For sixteen years he has been Professor of Pianoforte at the Royal Manchester College of Music, and he is one of the' most prominent musicians in Manchester today. Several of his works have already been broadcast from the Manchester Station.
The fourth item of his recital, Los Requiebros
(endearing or flattering expressions), is the first of a set of Pianoforte pieces, entitled Goyescas, written by the Spanish Composer Granados as musical commentaries on pictures by the celebrated Spanish painter, Francisco Goya.
MISS WINIFRED DAVIS owes her musical career to the War, for it was only then that she seriously began to study after her first public appearance. She was a pupil of the late Liza Lehmann , and was soon engaged to sing in opera at the Old Vic and with various other operatic companies. Many listeners will remember her performances in ' Decameron Nights ' at Drury Lane.

MR. ANTHONY COLLINS has played in all parts of the world, and claims the distinction of being the only Englishman to have played before the Emir of Mecca. In his recital this afternoon he will give a first performance in Manchester of a Rhapsody by W. H. Reed , the leader of the London Symphony Orchestra, who has composed a number of orchestral and chamber music works.
FOR some years, Mr. Joseph Lingard has been principal flautist in the famous Halle Orchestra. His delicate playing has won praise from famous critics, and his programme this afternoon should allow him full scope.

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.
