The Bronkhurst Trio consists of three gifted and well-known musicians. The pianist, Henry Bronkhurst, studied at the Matthay School and at the Royal College of Music, where he won several Exhibitions and the Dannreuther Prize. He formed his Trio in 1924, and it was one of the first chamber music combinations to broadcast. The violinist, John Fry, studied under Blagrove and Pecskai. He is now professor of violin and viola at Trinity College of Music. The 'cellist, Edward Robinson, studied under W. E. White-house, and is now professor at the Walenn 'Cello School, and plays regularly for several well-known string quartets, including the Charles Woodhouse Quartet.
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.
