Frank Merrick is quite a familiar name to listeners, for he is often to be heard in broadcast, recitals. For over twenty years he has been a professor at the Royal Academy of Music, where many gifted young pianists have passed through his hands. In 1910 a programme of Mr. Merrick's own music gained a Diploma of Honour at the International Rubinstein Competition in St. Petersburg, and during the Schubert Centenary Celebrations he won a competition for the completion of Schubert's ' Unfinished' Symphony, which was broadcast. As a pianist Frank Merrick is not only a, fine artist, but one who possesses catholic tastes and sympathies.
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.
