William H. Reed
William Reed was one of the closest friends of Elgar, and was with him when the first ' sketchy version ' of the Concerto was taken in hand by the composer. It was in Mr. Reed's presence that many parts of the masterpiece which we know today were completed, and it was he who first played the violin part before a formal audience
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.
