Esther Coleman (Contralto) Norman Fraser (Pianoforte)
Esther Coleman, so well-known to listeners, for whom she has broadcast some two hundred times, studied at the Guildhall School of Music, and in six years' training carried off all possible honours and prizes. She is not only a popular broadcaster, but has long established her place as one of the most sought after contralto singers on the concert platform. Norman Fraser, born in 1904 in Valparaiso, is of Scottish and Spanish ancestry, but his student days were spent mostly in London under Carl Albenesi and Tobias Matthay. His first microphone appearances were in Vienna and in England, both in 1928. He has appeared on the stage, playing in Magda with Gwen Francois Davies three years ago, and composes music of a very engaging order - as, for example, items in the programmes of the Pini Tango Orchestra.
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.
