Leslie Heward , a Yorkshireman, is now Musical Director and Conductor of The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Only thirty-four, he has already had a full musical life. For example, at eight he was deputising for his organist father; at twelve, he was a choir boy at Manchester Cathedral, giving piano lessons, winning prizes at competition festivals, and graduating as organist and choirmaster, a post he occupied all to himself at the age of sixteen.
He then won a scholarship to the Royal College of Music; became, later, music master first at Kton then at Westminster; joined the British National Opera Company as chorus-master, was soon promoted to his rightful place on the staff of conductors, and at the age of twenty-six, having served a full and arduous apprenticeship, was appointed to the eonductorship of the. Capetown Municipal Orchestra and the musical directorship of broadcasting in Capetown. After three years of conducting there-often in tropical heat—and broadcasting so frequently that he had to conceal his identity under half-a-dozen aliases, he returned to England and was presently appointed to his present conductorship at Birmingham. Howard is not only a conductor; he has composed a number of works of all kinds, of a quality ranking with the best British contemporary music. Listeners will call to mind the first performance of an orchestral work by him entitled ' Quodlibet,' at a Sunday Evening Concert in May of last year.

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.
