Hugh Morton, who has been the leading man in a number of Martyn Webster's light musical shows, has had twelve years' experience as an actor, including the stage, films, and radio. In his talk he will single out outstanding adventures which he has had both in this country and in Spain, where he went to make a film in the mountains.


Speaker: Hugh Morton


Conductor,JOHAN HOCK
Marin Marais, the contemporary of Lully, was born in Paris in 1656 and died there in 1728. At an early age he became a member of the choir of Sainte-Chapelle and there he learnt to play the bass viol. At the age of twenty-nine he was appointed soloist in the Royal Band, and also became a member of the orchestra of the Academie Royale de Musique. During this period he came into contact with Lully, who gave him some lessons in composition. Marais appears to have devoted a great deal of time to writing music for the theatre and opera, and he also did a great deal of teaching. He wrote the music for the play, Ariane and Bacchus, which was produced in 1697.

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.
