Heddle Nash became a legend in his own lifetime. Even today his records are still requested and sold, and fellow artists love to talk of him:
He had a voice that comes once in a century ... He was a very lovable man ... Arrogant, no, but he knew he was good ...
David Franklin , as a school-boy, watched Heddle's debut in 1925. Much later he worked with him as a fellow professional and counted him a friend.
He builds up a portrait of the famous tenor with the help of JOAN CROSS, CHARLES GROVES STANFORD
ROBINSON OWEN BRANNIGAN , ISOBEL BAILLIE and JOHN HEDDLE NASH
He completes the portrait with some examples of that incomparable voice - the voice of Heddle Nash.

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.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
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.
