Perhaps most people remember Charles Wood as the composer of that stirring song ' Ethiopia Saluting the Colours', and of many part-songs. Besides writing a great quantity of music, he was famous for many years as a teacher. He taught some of our leading present-day composers, such as Vaughan Williams, and in 1924 he succeeded
Stanford as Professor of Music at Cambridge University. He held the post only two years, dying in 1926. Like Stanford, he was an Irishman who settled in England and collected and edited a great many beautiful Irish tunes.

The Water Music
King George I had formed the habit of attending certain masquerades on the Thames which, as a feature of those days, were organised usually on a subscription basis. On one occasion he expressed a wish that an aquatic concert might be planned on the same lines. There were initial difficulties with impresarios, who saw no profit in it for themselves, but, finally, Baron Kilmanseck, Master of the King's Horse, put up the money. The concert was a great success; the river was crowded with barges, and afterwards there was a grand supper at Lord Ranelagh's house at Chelsea. The King had already expressed high approval of the music composed specially for the occasion by the famous Handel, first composer of the King's music, and commanded it to be repeated once before and once after supper. Each performance took an hour, so that the King did not get back to St. James's till half-past four the next morning. This is an arrangement by Sir Hamilton Harty of some of the numbers from the complete Water Music.
Love the Magician The story of Falla's ballet El amor bruin is founded on a folk tale in which the ghost of a dead lover appears whenever the new lover seeks to take his place. The scenario was written by the well-known dramatist Martinez Sierra, who prepared also that of Falla's other ballet The Three-Cornered Hat. The music of El amor brujo was composed in 1915, and the part of Candelas, the heroine, was one of the favourite roles of the celebrated dancer, La Argentina. In the Fire Dance, Candelas, the girl of whom the ghost is jealous, hopes to defeat the ghost by drawing a magic circle on the ground and uttering incantations over a witches' cauldron.

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.

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