: THE BBC WELSH ORCHESTRA

Leader, Frank Thomas
Conductor, Idris Lewis
Walter Glynne (tenor)
As his name suggests, Walter Glynne is a Welshman. He was bom near Swansea, and may be said to be musically a product of the Eisteddfodd. He won a scholarship of the Royal College of Music while still at college, and later joined the D'6yly Carte Opera Company as principal tenor.
He served through the war, and on his return began to sing all over the country at the principal concerts and festivals. He is particularly noted as a ballad singer. He has been broadcasting since the Marconi House days, and has made a great many recordings.

: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Irene Scharrer
Towards the end of his life Cesar Franck composed several large-scale piano works. One of the finest was the ' Prelude, Choral, and Fugue', which was first performed in 1885. Vincent d'Indy tells us that ' Franck started with the intention of simply writing a prelude and fugue in the style of Bach, but he soon took up the idea of linking these two movements together by a Choral, the melodic spirit of which should brood over the whole work

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.
