: PIANO MUSIC

played by Dorothea Aspinall
Dorothea Aspinall showed remarkable early ability for the piano, as might be expected from one whose father was a professional violinist and assistant music master at Wellington College. At the age of twelve she won an exhibition at Reading University, where for five years she studied with Howard Jones , afterwards gaining an open scholarship at the Royal College of Music. She there carried off the Wilson Scholarship, enabling her to study with Irene Scharrer and eventually to launch out on a distinguished professional career.
She, has played piano concertos with many of the country's leading orchestras, and has broadcast on numerous occasions both by herself and with Audrey Piggott as a member of the New English Trio.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.
