: AN ORGAN RECITAL

by G. D. Cunningham from the Town Hall, Birmingham G. D. Cunningham was appointed organist to the City of Birmingham in 1925 and shortly afterwards organist to the University of Birmingham. Both the instruments which he plays, the famous Birmingham Town Hall organ and the four-manual instrument in the Great Hall of the University, are among the finest of their kind. Cunningham has been an organist practically all his life. At the Royal Academy of Music he won the Henry Smart Scholarship for organ playing, and while studying at the Academy was appointed organist at the Congregational Church, West Hampstead. In 1901 he became organist at Alexandra Palace, London, being chosen from about seventy candidates. Further appointments which he has held are those of organist at St. James's Church, iMuswell Hill-where the beautiful Harrison organ was built to his specification-at Holy Trinity Church. Stroud Green, and at St. Alban's Church, Holborn.

: ' STILL CLOSE TO EARTH '

Henry Williamson
Many listeners will remember the series of six talks that Henry Williamson gave under this title last August and'September.
These talks described how, deciding to do less writing and more farming, the author bought a more or less derelict farm in Norfolk, and despite every discouragement worked to make it a profitable and well-going concern.
So popular did these broadcasts prove that it has been decided to extend the story of the Williamson farm for another group of talks of which this evening's is the first.
Henry Williamson is the author of ' Tarka the Otter ', ' Salar the Salmon ', and a number of other works that have placed him in the front line of English naturalist writers.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
