by Mrs. NORMAN O'NEILL
THERE were two Scarlattis, both of whom were brilliant performers and prolific composers, and the whole family to which they belonged consisted almost wholly of musicians. Domenico, son of Alessandro, achieved a wider fame than his father, not only as pianist, but as a composer for his instrument and the stage.
The long line of Couperins was prominent in the history of French music from the middle of the seventeenth century down to the nineteenth. The most famous member of the clan was Francois, who was born in Paris in 1668, end who died there 1733.
In a later generation than Couperin, Rameau won for himself the undoubted position of the greatest French musician of his time. Ahvnily at the ago of seven he played the harpsichord brilliantly, and as organist and composer lie was held in such honour that ho was on the point of being raised to noble rank in 1764, when ho died.
In the first half of the eighteenth century Leo was distinguished as a composer for the church and of comic operas. He is known to have composed serious opera too, but so few of there survive that it is not possible to judge how far they were successful.
In the latter half of the seventeenth and the first years of the eighteenth centuries, Pasquini held an important place in the music of Rome, as harpsichord player, as teacher, and as composer.
Van den Chen was the name of a famous family of boll founders and players of carillons ; the name can bo found on sets of bells in Europe to this day.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
