: THE BARRINGTON QUARTET:

Vera Siddons (soprano)
Gladys Palmer (contralto)
John Turner (tenor) George Pizzey (bass)
This Quartet was formed for broadcasting by Leslie Woodgate , and made its first microphone appearance in 1933. Since then it has given tome sixty broadcasts, as well as filling numerous concert engagements.
Each of the four members is an accomplished solo artist, and George Pizzey and Vera Siddons are well known as radio duettists.
Gladys Palmer studied opera at the London School of Opera, and made her first appearance at Covent Garden while still a student. She has had many years of operatic experience, and may well claim to be a veteran of broadcasting, for she actually sang once at Marconi House.
George Pizzey studied under
Eugene Goossens , and has broadcast three hundred times since 1922.
Vera Siddons was trained for the Civil Service, but elected to take up music. She studied with the late Madame Amy Sherwin , the late Herman Klein , and Mr. Spencer Clay.
She gained stage experience by spending four years in a concert party.
John Turner is also a broadcasting veteran, having first sung over the air in 1922. He has sung in all the principal cities of the British Isles, and toured with the Royal Carl Rosa Opera Company.

Anis Fuleihan , of Syrian origin, was bom in Cyprus (where his father was a British Government physician) in 1900. He began his serious musical training in 1915 when he settled in America. He first appeared as a pianist in 1919 and as a composer the following year. Since then he has written ballets, orchestral suites, two piano concertos, a viola concerto, a string quartet, and the symphony to be played this evening.
The Symphony was written in the summer of 1936 and first performed on December 31, 1936, by the New York Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra under Barbirolli. According to Fuleihan 'it is, in a sense, a picture of the people of my own country: Syria '. The first movement suggests aspiration towards a distant, vaguely-defined ideal ; the second is ' the song of people who work in the fields' ; in the third ' the dread of war beats upon the pulses of people who wonder what it's all about ; the fortissimo termination of the fugue phrase is supposed to be in the nature of a supplication ' ; the finale ' expresses the exuberance of the youth of the country ; it is supposed to have a " song of the people" character, hence the commonplaceness of some of the harmonies '.

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.
