: THE AUSTRAL TRIO

The Austral Trio, founded by its pianist, Henry Penn , at the end of 1937. consists of piano, cello, and violin, and is distinguished for its all-round versatility. Henry Penn himself believes in the varied programme and refuses to limit his repertoire to any particular type or style. The Trio has a wide range, and Penn is always on the look-out for new works, and eager to score and arrange pieces to suit the high capability of his combination.
The cellist, Henry Elman , began his musical career by studying the piano, but eventually took up the cello, as an exponent of which he has played with a great many well-known orchestras as a soloist.
Philip Hillier , violinist of the Trio, studied at the Royal Academy of Music, and shortly after leaving there, became leader of the Trocadero Orchestra. He had his own orchestra in South Africa.

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.
