: Welsh Composers: Original Works by Leigh Henry

Part I
The Station Orchestra, conducted by Leigh Henry

Leigh Henry (born 1889) was at first intended for the profession of architect, but took up music also, and eventually devoted himself entirely to it, particularly in its relation to the theatre. He was for some years Director of Music at Gordon Craig's School for the Art of the Theatre, in Florence, and has composed several works for the stage, besides chamber pieces, songs, and orchestral works. He is actively connected with modern musical movements and with the furthering of Welsh national art, and to-night we are to hear some fruits of the latter of these interests.

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.
