John Liptrott Hatton , was born at Liverpool in 1809 and died in Margate in 1886. As well as writing sacred music, operas, and incidental music for the theatre, he was a prolific composer of songs, and the half-hour devoted to them this evening will give listeners an idea of his worth. His most famous song, ' To Anthea', a setting of Herrick, is included in the programme.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
