The two composers to whose works this programme is devoted are both Birmingham musicians. Dr. Edmunds, one time Chorus Master at Birmingham during the early days of the B B C, is now a professor at the Birmingham School of Music. His first compositions date from 1922, and since that time he has written five operas, including The Blue Harlequin, based on the play by Maurice Baring , and a number of other works, such as string quartets and violin sonatas.
William Fenny , a pupil of Sir Granville Bantock, is chiefly known as a composer of chamber music and songs.
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.
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.
