ONE of the most nteresting figures in the present-day American world of music, Ernest Henry Schelling gave his first performance in Philadelphia asaninfant prodigy pianist before he was five years old. His father had the prudence to see that he was thoroughly taught after that initial success, and at the age of six he came to Europe and underwent thorough courses of study in .Paris, at Basle, and finally at Vienna with Leschetizky. For some years he was known as a brilliant concert pianist throughout Europe, and played quite frequently in London. But at the age of twenty-two he went for four years to study further with Paderewski. Since then he has toured even more extensively than before, playing recitals, in chamber music concerts, and with many of the leading orchestras of the world. Since the war, he has made his home again in America, and takes a keen interest in training the younger generation in musical appreciation. He is known throughout the States not only as a fine performer himself, but as an able lecturer on musical subjects.
The Fantastic Suite was the second of his published works, and the one which has been most often played, in this country, at any rate.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
