A portrait of Sir Hamilton Harty
The fifth of six programmes about great British conductors, compiled and written by BRYAN CRIMP
Narrated by John Rowe
Sir Hamilton Harty was an exact contemporary of Sir Thomas Beecham and in the opinion of many no less distinguished as a musician. But today he is largely forgotten and his few recordings are mostly on worn 78s. He was an ardent champion of Berlioz and it was Harty who conducted the premiere performances of Walton's First Symphony.
Producer ALAN HAYDOCK (R)

(Re-broadcast tomorrow at 5.25pm) Stereo
followed by an interlude
In order to carry out essential maintenance work, the Droitwich Transmitter will be switched off next
Wednesday 4 September.
There will be no medium wave transmission on Radios 1,2 and 3 in the Midlands, and no long wave transmission on Radio 4 in the whole of England and Wales.
VHF/FM transmissions will continue as usual, so don't panic if your radio is silent - just switch to VHF/FM, if it is available to you. This of course always enhances your listening, since programmes can be heard in stereo.
Shipping forecasts - normally transmitted on Radio 4 long wave - will be broadcast by Coastal Radio stations and BBC Local Radio stations.
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.
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
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.
