: THE MANCHESTER TUESDAY MIDDAY SOCIETY'S CONCERT

from the Houldsworth Hall ,
Manchester
A Violin Recital by Eda Kersey accompanied by The Royal Manchester College of Music String Orchestra
Conductor, R. J. Forbes
Eda Kersey is practically a self-taught violinist. After a few years of guidance in the difficult early stages of violin technique she then carried on entirely by herself, supplementing her studies with constant attendances at chamber and orchestral concerts.
Talking of her career Miss Kersey says : ' At the age of ten, when we moved from Goodmaves, Essex, to Southsea, I suddenly realised that the violin was my vocation. I studied under one or two local teachers, then at the age of fourteen I heard Kreisler and from that moment set my heart on becoming a concert soloist. I gave my first concert at sixteen, which was a success in a small way. Since that time I have learned much from hearing great violinists, and the rest has been done by hard work. I practise for about seven hours a day.'
Miss Kersey obtained her first really important engagement in 1925 when she was engaged to play the Mendelssohn Concerto at the old
BBC Bournemouth studio. In 1930 she played both the Beethoven and Brahms Concertos at the Proms, and in the following year went to Holland where she had great success. Since that time she has on many occasions broadcast for the BBC.

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.

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.
