Conductor, A. W. Parker
Boys' School Choir
The Illogan Boys' School Choir won the Petherick Shield for Boys' Choirs in the Cornwall County Music Festival this year for the fourth time in succession, and also a trophy for sight singing. The school is situated two miles from Redruth in the tin mining district-the only part of Cornwall scheduled as a Distressed Area. Richard Trevithick , inventor of the first locomotive, was born in the parish.
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.
