THE HALLÉ ORCHESTRA
Conducted by Sir HAMILTON HARTY
Sir Hamilton Harty was born in 1879 nt
Hillsborough, Ireland. He showed natural and brilliant musical gifts as a boy, and his father gave him lessons on the piano, organ and viola.
When only twelve years of age Harty became a church organist and later held similar posts in Belfast and Dublin. In 1900 he came to London and made a name as an accompanist. During the war Harty obtained a great deal of experience as a conductor, particularly with the London Symphony Orchestra, and in 1920 was appointed permanent conductor of the Halle Orchestra, the fine traditions of which he has well upheld As a composer Harty is no less distinguished, and among a fair quantity of compositions special mention must be made of the Irish Symphony, the Violin Concerto in D minor, the tone poem for orchestra, With the Wild Geese, and The Mystic Trumpeter (Whitman) for voices and orchestra.

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.

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

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.
