by Percy Turnbull
Several of Percy Turnbull 's compositions have been broadcast at different times. His ' Northumbrian Rhapsody ' for orchestra was first performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Sir Adrian Boult , at a Patrons' Fund Concert in 1925, and was broadcast from London about a year later. In 1925 Marie Wilson (solo violin), with Turnbull himself at the piano, performed his violin and pianoforte sonata at the Royal College of Music. Between 1923 and 1925 he gave several piano recitals from Newcastle-on-Tyne and Daventry.

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.
