Eric Goldie (baritone)
Eric Goldie was born at Tywardreath in Cornwall. He was a chorister at Exeter Cathedral for six years from the age of ten ; later he returned to Exeter as assistant master at the Choristers' School.
When he decided to take up singing professionally, he was appointed Baritone Lay Clerk of Manchester Cathedral, in 1933. Two years later he was appointed a Lay Vicar of Westminster Abbey, a position he now holds.
His first broadcast was from
The Hon. James Best
A short time ago James Best gave a talk. which was much appreciated, on his visit to a German farm. Tonight he will give his personal 'observations on what he saw recently on some farms in Ireland. He himself farms some two hundred acres in Dorset.
Over 600,000 cattle are exported every year from Eire to Great Britain, and farmers and others will be interested to hear something of the conditions under which these Irish heifers and steers are produced, and of the people who raise them.
Mr. Best is on the committee of the Bath and West Show, and writes for The Field and The Times on agriculture and on natural history.

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.
