by James Ching
A Bach Programme
Toccata and Fugue in C minor
Prelude, Fugue, and Allegro in E flat
James Chihg began his musical studies at the Royal Academy of Music at the age of seven, taking piano under Tobias Matthay and composition under Frederick Corder. ' At eleven years of age ', said Mr. Matthay, ' he played the Bach Fantasia and Fugue like a virtuoso.' In his seventeenth year Mr. Ching took his A.R.C.O., won the La Fontaine Prize, and gained an open organ scholarship at the Royal College of Music, where some months later he took his F.R.C.O. and won the Turpin Prize. At the Royal College of Music he studied under Stanford and Parratt until 1920, when he went to Oxford to take the degrees of Mus.Bac. and B.A. In 1925 Mr. Ching made his debut as a solo pianist, giving recitals and later appearing as soloist at the Proms. Of late years, however, Mr. Ching has devoted himself chiefly to teaching.

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.
