The Royal Water Music
Handel, transcribed Hamilton Harty
Symphony No. 4, in D minor
Schumann, new edition by Hamilton Harty
The Royal Water Music was composed by Handel to entertain King George I on the occasion of a fete given on the Thames at which the royal barge was rowed in procession up the river to Chelsea. Handel served the English king in two capacities, first in Hanover, where George was Elector, and later in England when he was made king.
There has always been controversy about
Schumann's competence to orchestrate his own symphonies. Many musicians have felt that the finely conceived music has not its full chance against the somewhat crude scoring. Yet, until recent times it has been thought sacrilege even to suggest the remedy of re-scoring the works. Sir Hamilton Harty , however, has in this case, as always, the full courage of his convictions.

: ' The Economist in the Witness-Box ' —I

Mr. N. F. HALL (Head of the Department of Economics, Uhiversity College, London) and Commander STEPHEN KING-HALL
The first of a new series in which Commander
King-Hall, representing the man in the street, will cross-examine an economic expert on questions of the hour. Commander King-Hall needs no introduction to listeners : his genius for explaining world affairs is acknowledged by junior and senior listeners alike, while his naval career and play successes fit him to represent the inquiring layman. Mr. N. F. Hall is a well-known economist with English and American qualifications and experience.

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

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
