: An Orchestral Concert

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section E)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by LESLIE WOODGATE
MARIE WILSON (Violin)
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, and 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 expressly 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.

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
