This is one of the regular series of choral and orchestral concerts to be broadcast during the autumn and spring from the Colston Hall, Bristol. The series began on September 19.
The Colston Hall is one of the largest buildings of its kind in the country, the seating capacity being about 4,000. It stands on the site of the Carmelite Friary, afterwards known as the Great House. Edward Colston , an eighteenth-century philanthropist, bought the Great House in 1709, and established a hospital. At a later date it became Colston School under the government of the Society of Merchant Venturers.
Upon the removal of the School to Stapleton, the Great House with its site was bought by a few public-spirited citizens, and a hall was opened in 1867.
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.
