Hereford Cathedral organists on TV

A TV crew from BBC Midlands Inside Out visited Hereford Cathedral recently to film archival material and interviews for an item relating to former cathedral organist Sir Percy Hull’s World War 1 internment in Rhuleben civilian detention camp near Berlin. The piece features an interview with Percy Hull’s successor Geraint Bowen and is illustrated with documents and photographs from the cathedral archives.

Percy Hull is pictured standing behind Edward Elgar in this photo from the Hereford Cathedral Song School, with Sir Ivor Atkins of Worcester Cathedral on the left and Herbert Sumsion of Gloucester Cathedral on the right of this modern photo (c. Alex Ramsay).

The magazine-style programme was broadcast on Monday 26 January at 7.30 pm, BBC One West Midlands and then on the iPlayer for 30 days. The item is at 19 min43 secs into the programme Inside Out West Midlands
