George Barrett (flute) ; Lucy Vincent (oboe); Arthur Roberts (pianoforte)
Gottfried Finger was born at Olmutz in Moravia during the seventeenth century. He came to England in 1685 and was fortunate in securing the patronage of James II. Among his numerous works there are ' Six Sonatas or Solos, three for a Violin and three for a Flute', with John Banister he published a series of ' Ayres, Chacones, Divisions, Sonatas for Violins and Flutes', and with another musician 'a set of Sonatas in five parts for Flutes and Hautboys '.
Finger also composed a considerable amount of music for the theatre ; he was awarded a prize for the composition of Congreve's Masque ' The Judgment of Paris ', but owing to the indifference shown to this work, he left England and returned to Germany where he was appointed Chamber Musician to the Queen of Prussia. Very little is known about this composer's later life, but he is said to have written two German operas while living at Berlin.

: Midland Parliament-4

' Unemployment and Pension Schemes'
The discussion will deal with the three kinds of provision-by the State doing it all; by personal saving, or collective saving through a friendly society ; and by industry itself treating unemployment and superannuation as normal charges upon it. The object is to discover which of these methods, and what admixture of them, would be best for the happiness of Midland industry.

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
