: THE AVALON QUARTET

Marjorie Avis (soprano)
Gladys Jones (contralto)
Tom Purvis (tenor)
Glyn Eastman (bass)
Glyn Eastman's Avalon Quartet was formed at the invitation of the West of England Music Director, Reginald Redman , who wanted a London quartet with West Country connections.
Eastman himself, like two other members of the Quartet, Marjorie Avis and Gladys Jones , hails from Bristol. His father was an excellent pianist, and both his brothers accomplished amateur musicians. Eastman himself trained under a well-known Bristol music teacher at the end of the war, in which he served for the full four years. He was a prisoner for ten months in Berlin and, on a recent visit to that city, visited the scene of his imprisonment.
Glyn Eastman has been associated with broadcasting since 1923 and has been on the air nearly five hundred times.
Of the other members of the Quartet, Tom Purvis is an old hand at broadcasting, having been originally with the Wireless Singers, and Marjorie Avis has broadcast a great deal, chiefly in ensembles. Gladys Jones , the contralto, who is the youngest member of the combination, has gained her experience chiefly through solo work.

: THE MANCHESTER TUESDAY MIDDAY SOCIETY'S CONCERT

from the Memorial Hall, Manchester
The Carrelle Trio:
Beatrice Carrelle (violin)
Helga White (viola)
Muriel Taylor (violoncello)
(First performance)
Feruccio Bonavia , who since 1920 has been a distinguished music critic on the staff of the Daily Telegraph, studied music in Milan. For ten years he was a violinist in the Halle Orchestra under Richter and during that time he also contributed articles on music to the Manchester Guardian. Among his compositions are several pieces for the violin, a string quartet, a string octet, and music for the Manchester University performance of Aeschylus's Choephori.
The Piano Trio to be heard this afternoon was written about three years ago. Although fairly difficult to play from a technical point of view, it is very simple in structure and essentially melodic in style. The composer has said that he ' still believes in a good tune ', and this work is intended more for pure entertainment than for serious study.

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.
