TONIGHT we welcome Miss Myra Hess back from America-from the jaws of America, we almost said, for the leviathan nation is greedy of good artists and has a great power of absorption. But the London season also has its fascination upon those who perform in public, and London may now be glad that its attractions have again worked upon this London-born, London-trained and largely London-acclaimed pianist. Miss Hess stands high in the esteem of her fellow-musicians. There are no better regulated fingers than hers, but she has not permitted their advanced powers of dexterity to shape her career; they have played servant to her musicianship and her imagination, and it is as an artist of interpretation, of revealing expression and of all-round capacity that Miss Hess is known to both the narrower and the wider worlds of music-lovers.
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.
