(Section C)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by EDWARD CLARK
Josef Lanner , who was born near Vienna in 1801, has always been considered the father of the waltz. He wrote a quantity of very delightful dance music, particularly waltzes, some of which are still as popular as ever they were. He not only wrote these tunes, but formed a band to play them, so successfully that Lanner and his
Band toured the Continent for years and were welcome in every city in Europe.
One of the first men he engaged for his little orchestra was a viola player of the name of Johann Strauss ; this was Johann the elder, and in a short time Strauss began writing dance music himself and formed his own band.
He was more successful even than Lanner, and his career reads like a romance. Of his three sons, Johann, Josef, and Kduard, the first is the most famous, though they were all inexhaustible composers of dance tunes. Johann the younger is, indeed, the most famous of the whole family.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
