The Russian Church Choir came to England quite recently and has been giving recitals in various churches. Russia has a fine tradition of church music and, in spite of the political changes that have threatened to destroy them, the old music and the old high standard of performance are being kept alive by such fine bodies of singers as Ivan Denissov 's choir.

THE GRINKE TRIO:
Frederick Grinke (violin); Florence Hooton (violoncello) ; Dorothy Manley
(pianoforte)
SINCLAIR LOGAN (baritone)
Sinclair Logan , singer, organist, teacher and composer, was born in Cheshire in 1897. He is partly Scottish and partly Irish, and was educated at Worcester College and the Royal Normal College for the Blind. His first public appearances after the war were with Lady Pearson's Concert Party, which collected so many thousands of pounds for St. Dunstan's. He has since sung a great deal, but besides that, he teaches, is organist of St. Ninian's at Golder's Green, and is altogether a very busy man. He contrives to make one unaware of his handicap of sightlessness. Indeed, he has made himself independent of it, travelling alone to wherever his profession calls him, even spending his holidays climbing in the Alps.
Theodore Holland studied composition at the Royal Academy of Music with Frederic Corder. He was also a violin student at the Academy, working with Alfred Gibson ; later he went to the famous Berlin Hochschule and studied under Joachim himself. He is now a Professor of Composition and lecturer at his musical alma mater. As a composer, Holland is very versatile. His work ranges from a Violin Sonata (performed in Berlin by Karl Halir and Georg Schumann ) to additional numbers for a Leo Fall operetta, The Merry Peasant. A suite from his music to the play, Santa Claus (produced at the London Scala in 1912) has frequently been broadcast at Christmas time. This Trio in E minor is a recent composition, and is being broadcast for the first time this evening.

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.

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.
