LANE WILSON , who died in 1914 at the age of forty-four, belonged to a remarkable family of musicians, and two of his sisters were both distinguished singers who were regularly heard at the bigger Festivals in the latter part of last century. He began his own career as an organist and pianist, but his enthusiasm for old English songs induced him to take up singing hiraself. He had a charming light baritone voice, and was for some years a welcome and popular figure on British concert platforms. But it is by his musicianly arrangements of many fine old English songs that he has most surely won an enduring place in our affections and placed us in his debt.

JOHANN CHRISTIAN BACH followed Hande' as music master to the English Royal
Family, and, like his predecessor, made his home in London for many years. He adopted the English form of his name ; in a warrant granted him by the King for the publication of his own music, he is called our trusty and well-beloved John Christian Bach , Gent.' Like Handel, he knew something of the fickleness of the fashionable London world, and of the rivalries and intrigues in which operas and concerts of the day were mi xed up. At one time his music at the old King's Theatre, and in various of the London concert rooms, attracted crowds so great that many had to be turned away, and he mado enough money to live with a good deal of luxury. But in his last years his popularity waned before the brightness of newer favourites, and when he died his legacy to his widow was about £4,000 less than nothing. The Royal Family, and especially Queen Charlotte, saw to it that the most pressing claims were met, and furnished the widow with enough money to return to her native Italy. Bach had spent part of his youth there before coming to London, as a favourite pupil of Martini, and all his life had a real affection for the old Italian master. In the last year of his life in London he sent Martini his own portrait, painted by Gainsborough. Remembered now chiefly as one of the great Bach's sons, ho enjoyed a much wider fame in his own day than his father. In Italy, in Mannheim-at that time far ahead of the rest of Germany in music-and in Paris, they looked to him as one of the great masters of the time, and he more than once went abroad from London to supervise productions of his own operas.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

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.
