Astra Desmond studied singing under Blanche Marchesi. Within a few days of her debut at Steinway Hall she was engaged to sing at an Albert Hall ballad concert. She has sung in opera with the Royal Carl Rosa Opera Company and at Covent Garden and Sadler's Wells, and she is equally at home in concert work and oratorio. She was a friend of Elgar's and sang every one of his coritralto parts under his baton... ,
She first broadcast in 1924 and listeners have heard her frequently ever since. It is characteristic of her thoroughness that she worked for two and a half years at Grieg's songs and learned Norwegian before giving a Grieg recital a year or two ago.
Tickets can be obtained from the BBC, Queen's Hall, and the usual agents

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.
