A Recital from St. Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh
With notes of interest concerning the organ
Organist, W. Greenhouse Allt
Something new in organ recitals is promised by the series which begins this evening. Those who like to hear organ music are often curious about the characteristics of the instrument on which it is being played. In these visits to famous Scottish organs-many of which, incidentally, are played by English organists-some of the stops and other details of the instrument will be demonstrated to listeners. Only after this will listeners hear its capabilities in a programme of music.
It is fitting that the series should begin with the organ of the cathedral of the Scottish capital, played by the organist of St. Giles, Dr. W. Greenhouse Allt. The next organ to be heard will be that of St. George's (West), Edinburgh, played by Dr. Alfred Hollins , the celebrated blind virtuoso, who though born in Hull has lived in Edinburgh for forty years.
A seasonable mosaic in music and the spoken word
Devised by Alison Mill
Produced by Howard M. Lockhart
Winds of many kinds, from the breeze to the hurricane, but chiefly those of the more boisterous variety, are represented in this mosaic chosen by the author of ' Evening ', a programme that was warmly received recently by listeners. The story of the wind will be told mainly in readings of passages written in the Doric, but English will also be admitted. Music will contribute to the effect of the programme.
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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
