STEWART GARDNER (Baritone)
WILFRED WORDEN (Pianoforte)
There will be nothing in Wilfred Worden's playing, as it reaches listeners by wireless, to betray the fact that he is a more boy in his early teens. He is one of those exceptionally gifted people for whom difficulties evidently do not exist, and who, moreover, play even at an early age with all the mastery and under- standing which comes as a rule only with riper years. Not for a long time has England produced a youngster of gifts like his; wherever he has played, in this country and in some of the Continental music centres where, the standard of criticism is a very severe one, he has been acclaimed, without any dissenting voice, as a remarkable instance of precocious musicianship. It is only five years since he began his musical studies in earnest, but already he has won a big reputation for himself alike by his astonishing technique, and by the ripeness of his under- standing. Within the last few months he has played to Paderewski, Sir Henry Wood, and Backhaus (who was himself a wonderful boy prodigy), and they have all been profoundly impressed. In other ways he is a perfectly normal youngster, with all a boy's natural interest in games and wholesome fun, and even the success which has come to him so early has done nothing to spoil his simple, unassuming youth. Born in Lancashire, he claimed kinship with another distinguished native of that part of the world, the late 'Trader' Horn. And besides being kinsmen, the veteran explorer and his grand-nephew were close friends, each taking a keen interest in the other's achievements. When he broadcast before, young Worden introduced himself to B.B.C. listeners as a composer also; in that direction, he showed the same outstanding gifts almost as early as in playing.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
