Born in 1892, in Gloucestershire, Herbert Howells had his first instruction at the hands of Dr. Herbert Brewer, of Gloucester Cathedral. He was himself an articled pupil there for a time, coming in 1912 to the Royal College of Music in London with an open scholarship. After a brilliant career as a student, he joined the staff of the College and has since earned a distinguished position for himself among the younger native composers. He is at .home in every form of music, except opera, which he has not yet explored, and in all of them displays a sure hand and a real facility of invention. In spite of his duties in London, and the way in which the great world has captured so much of his gifts, Howells remains at heart a real West-countryman, with a keen interest in Gloucestershire.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
