A Radio Visitors' Book
Every fortnight for several months, Robin Russell , the BBC's Variety assistant in Glasgow, has been holding ' open house ' for visitors to the city. He has brought to the microphone many distinguished guests, as well as those who are less well known to the general public but who have interesting stories to tell. On Hogmanay he restricted his invitations to Scots who were on a visit to their native land. Before he joined the BBC, Robin Russell was a journalist in Glasgow.

The Scottish Orchestra
Leader, Henri Temianka
Conductor. Georg Szell from the St. Andrew's Hall, Glasgow (Soloist, RIA GINSTER> )(Trumpet obbligato, JAMES ELLIS )
Georg Szell, the conductor of the orchestra to be heard this evening, was born in Budapest forty years ago. At the age of seven he began the study of the piano, and he made his first outstanding success four years later when he gave a series of recitals. Soon he was touring the leading cities of Europe as a soloist. At the age of sixteen he made up his mind to become a conductor, and his chance came unexpectedly in 1913 when, through the illness of the regular conductor, he was called upon at short notice to direct the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, then fulfilling a summer engagement at Bad Kissinghen. Two years later Richard Strauss took him to Berlin as his assistant. This was the first of many important engagements.
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.
