: Music Makers: Alfredo Tomasini

Alfredo Tomasini is a notable addition to the celebrities who have already appeared in the "Music Makers" series. He was born in Winnipeg (his real name is Young) and before becoming a professional singer he had a half-share in a drug store. Both he and his partner were keen on singing, however, and nowadays he can afford to smile when he remembers how the shop used to be closed every afternoon so they could study. But if Tomasini was not a good shopkeeper, he made up for it with his voice. Since 1932, when he joined an operatic company in Italy, he has been in the public eye as a baritone of fine quality in Europe, the United States, and Canada.

In the afternoon at 3.10 viewers saw some beautiful specimens from the Daffodil Show to be held at the New Horticultural Hall tomorrow and the day after. This evening two well-known market growers will describe the art of growing daffodils in England. An interesting addition to the discussion will be a film illustrating the various stages of growth to the final process of packing.

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.
