: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Vivian Langrish
Vivian Langrish is a Bristolian. At the age of eleven he took part in the Bristol Eisteddfod, and Tobias Matthay , who was acting as an adjudicator, realising the young pianist's gifts, brought him to the Royal Academy of Music. There he studied under Matthay for piano and Corder for composition, and later carried off first the Ada Lewis Scholarship and then the Liszt Scholarship ; the privileges of the latter, however, he was unable to enjoy owing to the outbreak of war.
After serving in the Royal Air
Force, Langrish returned to music ; he played at the Proms, gave recitals, toured as soloist with Dame Clara Butt , and eventually became professor at the Royal Academy of Music and at the Matthay School. In 1922 he gave his first broadcast from Marconi House, and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music in 1924.

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.
