by G. D. Cunningham from the Concert Hall, Bournville
G D. Cunningham has broadcast on literally hundreds of occasions. Perhaps his two most interesting recitals were from Blenheim, the seat of the Duke of Marlborough. Before being appointed to succeed the late C. W. Perkins as city organist of Birmingham, he was organist at Alexandra Palace and at St. Alban's, Holborn, in London.

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.
