Rudolph Dolmetsch , who is well known to listeners, is a gifted member of a famous family. His father, Arnold Dolmetsch , who was born in France in 1858 and studied the violin with Vieuxtemps in Brussels, was not only one of the foremost authorities on all matters relating to old music and musical in struments, particularly of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, but a practical one. He actually makes these instruments-viols, recorders, clavichords, harpsichords, and many others -and makes them very beautifully indeed ; as a craftsman he has had few rivals in any age. But he not only makes them, he plays upon them, and within his own family, all of whom are accomplished executive musicians, he has revived the ddmestic ' Consort' of the seventeenth century.
The family lives at Haslemere, in Surrey, and even.' summer for years now a Dolmetsch festival of old music, which musicians in all countries of the world have been glad to attend, has been a feature of English musical life.

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.
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

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.
