From the Royal Albert Hall, London
Part 1
Bach-Handel
The story associated with the Water Music is well known: how Handel, as Court musician to the Elector of Hanover, outstayed his leave in England; and how he found himself in a difficult position when the Elector became King George I of England. But when the King heard Handel's music, written for a royal procession of barges on the river, he was so delighted with it that he forgave the composer and granted him a pension. This story is now discredited. Handel was not deprived of the King's favour for very long; and the Water Music dates from the year 1717, three years after George I came to the throne. According to a contemporary document, it was written for an occasion when George I and ' many persons of quality ' went in barges from Whitehall to Chelsea and back again. In one barge were * fifty instruments of all sorts who played all the way from Lambeth the finest symphonies, composed express for this occasion by Mr. Handel.' We are also told that the music was so strongly approved by His Majesty that he commanded it to be repeated, once before and once after supper.' The original suite comprised some twenty pieces; Sir Hamilton Harty , when making his arrangement for a modem orchestra, chose six, the third being a Bourree and the fourth a Hornpipe.

: PROMENADE CONCERT Part 2

The ballet, The Wise Virgins, was produced by the Sadler's Wells Company in 1940, with choreography by Frederick Ashton and scenery and costumes by Rex Whistler. The music, chosen from various works of Bach, was orchestrated by William Walton. Of the six movements of the suite, all except the second, a choral prelude, are taken from cantatas. The fifth movement, ' Sheep may safely graze,' which has become widely known, 18 in its original form an air from the Birthday Cantata. Harold Rutland

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
