Denis Morris belongs to one of the oldest and best-known families in the leather trade. He has played first-class Rugby football for ten years and recently broadcast an eye-witness account of the semi-final round of the County Championship. He is in a firm of leather tanners and previously had experience in firms of tanners, lithographic printers, and advertising agents.

In 1933 he won a ward in the Leicester municipal elections ; and he is still the youngest member of the Leicester City Council.

Edward MacDowell , though an American-born composer, descended from a Quaker family of Scottish-Irish extraction, and retained throughout his life Gaelic characteristics. He was educated, for the most part, in Europe. When he returned to America he gave himself whole-heartedly to the advancement of music in that country and exerted a healthy influence on American composers.
MacDowell was essentially a romanticist, and like his master, Joachim Raff , was fond of interpreting nature in terms of music. One [could almost say that his contribution to American music is akin to that of Nathaniel Hawthorne in American literature.

Mrs Agatha Whatcombe:
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.
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.
