: Handel's Water Music

The orchestral suite known as Handel's Water Music was first performed at a lavish riverboat banquet for George I in 1717. While the music served as pure entertainment, the event itself was a cunning PR stunt to overshadow the extravagant parties given by the king's son, the scheming Prince of Wales. Historical reconstruction, documentary and performance combine in a one-off re-enactment of this concert on the Thames, with excerpts played on period instruments by the English Concert under violinist Andrew Manze 's direction. Presented by Peter Ackroyd.

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.
