British HistorY-5 'The Forty-Five'
RHODA POWER
Today Schools are to hear about Charles Edward Stuart , grandson of James II, and known as ' Bonnie Prince Charlie' or ' The Young Pretender '. Before he set out from Navarre in 1745 to try and regain the crown for his father, James, 'The Old Pretender' (claimant to the throne), he must have thrilled his father by writing him a letter of which this is an extract :
' Sir,—I believe Your Majesty little expected a courier at this time, and much less from me ; to tell you a thing that will be a great surprise to you. I have been, above six months ago, invited by our friends to go to Scotland. and to carry what arms and money I could conveniently get; this being, they are fully persuaded, the only way of restoring you to the crown..... Your Majesty cannot disapprove a son's following the example of his father. You yourself did the like in the year '15. ... Your Majesty's dutiful son, Charles P.'
This afternoon you are to be taken back to the year of the rebellion of 1745—to meet some of the Jacobites.

Rachmaninov tells us in his ' Recollections ' that after the failure of his first Symphony in 1897 he returned to Moscow with all his confidence gone : ' Agonising hours spent in doubt and hard thinking had brought me to the conclusion that I ought to give up composing. I was obviously unfitted for it, and therefore it would be better if I made an end to it at once ... paralysing apathy possessed me. I did nothing at all and found no pleasure in anything. Half my days were spent lying on a couch and sighing for my ruined life '. This state of mind lasted about a year and then Rachmaninov accepted an invitation from the London Philharmonic Society to play at one of its Symphony Concerts. His success encouraged him and he agreed to write a second concerto specially for the Philharmonic, but on his return to Russia he once again relapsed into his former state of mind.
Finally, in January, 1900, Rachmaninov submitted himself to hypnotic treatment and he says : ' Although it may sound incredible, this cure really helped me. Already at the beginning of the summer I began again to compose. The material grew in bulk, and new musical ideas began to stir within me—far more than I needed for my concerto '.
Certainly the C minor Concerto shows no signs of laboured work, but is full of great virility and spontaneous invention. It is interesting to note that the thematic material of the four works written during this period-Suite No. 2 for two Pianos, Piano Concerto in C minor, and the 'Cello Sonata in C minor-are clearly related to each other. It is as if the themes derive from one basic germ idea.

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.
