IT. was not the intention of Berlioz's father to permit bis son to follow a. musical profession. , Hector was to be a doctor like his father, and the boy's education till he was twenty was. directed to that end. Consequently, when he did break away and left the medical school to enter the Conservatoire, he had to make up for lost time. He did so and studied with such feverish eagerness that within seven years he had won the highest award France can offer a young musician, the Prix de Rome. And yet during the whole time he was at the Conservatoire he was studying under the most painful difficulties. His parents would have nothing to do with their passionate, rebellious son, nor did his teachers care to. Yet he kept his heart, stuck grimly to his purpose, and because he was absolutely without means he joined the chorus at a small theatre and supported himself and paid his fees out of the meagre salary he received. But in these seven years he had written a great deal of experimental music, some of which has not only survived but has taken its place with his later and maturer work. The Overture which was composed in 1827 is an effective example of his early work.
THE father of Johan Svendsen (1840-
1911) was a military bandmaster in Christiana, consequently, like young Sullivan, who had also the good fortune to be the son of a bandmaster, Svendsen picked up before he was twelve more than has many a student at twice that age. He was in the Army for a few years and became himself a bandmaster in his teens. Svendsen did not compose a great deal, and that nearly all in his early manhood. He was a busy conductor and teacher, and, driven hard by these tyrannical professions. he had less and less time for composition and presently none at all.

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.
