Bernard Crook is essentially a post-War musician, since it was only in 1914 that he sealed his career with an open scholarship for the pianoforte. After a season or two of recitals in London and the provinces, he went on tour through the British Isles and later with Pavlova in a season of International Celebrity Concerts. This was some three or four years ago. Since then, he has become a popular broadcaster. He owes much of this to his belief that light music should be played with style and with the finesse of a chamber music performance. In keeping with this belief he selects the members of his Quintet principally for their achievements as chamber music players.

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.
