Herbert Howells , born at Lydney, in Gloucestershire, in 1892, is now professor at the Royal College of Music, where he was formerly a student. He has composed a good deal in most of the recognised forms, particularly for orchestra. Such pieces as the charming ' Puck's Minuet', ' Procession ', and ' Lady Audrey's Suite' are well known to listeners. His chamber music has earned him such distinction as winning a Cobbett Prize with one work, and a Carnegie award with another. His songs and piano pieces are greatly esteemed by discerning artists and critics. Howell's music is equally contemplative and vigorous, and, though essentially modern, is as steeped in beauty and tradition as is the countryside of his native Gloucestershire.
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.
