He Sent a Thick Darkness ..1 , .
He Smote All the First-Born. (Israel in Egypt
AT the battle of Dettingen. in 1743, George II. fought and beat the French and Prussians -the last time a King of England appeared in person on the field and took an active part in a battle. For the national thanksgiving to celebrate the victory Handel, as Composer to the Chapel Royal, composed an Anthem, and this dignified, resoundingly sonorous Te Demn.
HANDEL'S biggest patron in England, after the King, was that Duke, 'the princely
Chandos,' who did so well for himself out of the pickings, when he controlled the Army's pay, that lie was able to set up a huge house, with a private chapel and an orchestra, at Canons Park, Edgware. He appointed Handel his Master of Music, and here the Composer wrote, for performance in the Chapel, a number of large-scale Choral pieces which are known by the general title of ' Chandos Anthems '
THE Oratorio Israel in Egypt tells how, when the new King, who knew not Joseph,' reigned over Egypt, he sorely afflicted the children, of Israel. Then the Lord sent Moses and Aaron to show His signs and wonders, for a warning to the froward Egyptians. He turned the waters into blood, and sent the plagues of frogs and insects. Fire and hailstones descended, and ' He sent a thick darkness over all the land, even darkness which might be felt. He smote all the first-bom of Egypt, the chief of all their strength.'

: MY PROGRAMME

by GEORGE GROSSMITH
THERE is no more prominent figure in the entertainment world than Mr. Grossmith, actor-manager, dramatic author and representative of a great theatrical family. From 1900 to 1914 he played at the Gaiety Theatre, and after the war opened the now Winter Garden Theatre. Some of his greatest successes were made in The Shop Girl, Our Miss Gibbs, To-night's the Night and, of course, No, No Nanette, the phenomenal run of which at the Palace Theatre ended only this autumn. Mr. Grossmith's experience of the entertainment industry in so much of its forms has before now been of great service to the B.B.C., and listeners will be especially interested to hear a programme chosen and arranged entirely by him.

: KEYBOARD MUSIC

OF THE LATE XVII. AND EARLY XVIII. CENTURIES
Interpreted by Mrs. NORMAN O'NEILL
Flemish, Old German and English Music A WHOLE family of Fioccos, originally coming from Venice, flourished in Brussels in the eighteenth century. The pieces we are to hear are by the most distinguished member of the family, who was a not-able player of the Harpsichord.
BELGIUM has always been famed for her carillons, peals of bells played from a keyboard. Van den Gheyn was a prominent 'carilloneur,' who took office at St. Peter's, Louvain. when he was twenty. He wrote for the carillon of that Church the Prelude we are to hear.
MATHESON, one of Handel's friends
(who once ' quarrelled with him and nearly killed him in a duel), is said to have determined to publish a work for every year of his life. He did it comfortably, producing eighty-eight works in eighty-three years.
PURCELL'S dances, that mostly belong to his incidental music for stage works, are among the best ever written-full of musieianly resource and abounding in grace and vivacity.

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.
