: A PIANOFORTE RECITAL

by Edmund Rubbra
Music by Bach's Sons
The most remarkable family in the history of music was undoubtedly that of the Bachs. The earliest record of the Bachs dates from the middle of the sixteenth century, and the last representative, a grandson of Johann Sebastian , died in 1865. Throughout this period-from the age of Luther to that of Bismarck
. almost the entire family practised music. The three greatest Bachs were Johann Sebastian and his two sons, Johann Christian and Carl Philipp Emanuel. His eldest son, however, Friedrich, was also a composer of considerable note, but his work has not the historical significance of that of the other two.

: ' SONGS OF BRITISH SEAMEN'

Benbow and Vernon
H. E. Piggott
With the sea-songs of the early eighteenth century Mr. Piggott finally leaves the field of the shanty and its kind and is obliged to confine himself to the ballad commemorating contemporary victories. However, some even of these have now become traditional ; the authors are forgotten and the ballads survive as folksongs. A typical example is one of the songs about Admiral Benbow, which Cecil Sharp unearthed in Somerset:
' Come, all you seamen bold, and draw near, and draw near ;
Come, all you seamen bold, and draw near.
It's of an admiral's fame, 0 brave
Benbow was his name,
How he fought all on the main, you shall hear, you shall hear.'

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.
