BANTOCK, the son of a doctor, had some
-D lessons at Trinity College, London, and then studied at the Royal Academy of Music. Here some of his compositions were performed. Later, he ran a musical magazine for a time, and conducted musical comedies, in the provinces and on a world tour. In 1897 he became Musical Director at New Brighton Tower, and made known there a good deal of British music. Then in 1900 he was made Principal of the Birmingham and Midland Institute School of Music, and, seven years later. Professor of Music in the University of Birmingham.
In his choice of subjects for musical treatment he has frequently been attracted by Eastern and pagan ideas, poetry and mythology.

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.
