Jarvis' investigation began when he was a student at the Royal Academy of Music in London, when he himself was first playing the cello suites. In his mind, these compositions were very different to the other pieces Bach wrote, which aroused his suspicions.
This is not a promising beginning for his "investigation."

Interesting theory. I keep an open mind but in the absence of convincing evidence other than circumstantial conjecture and broad opinion, I would hesitate.

Actually all of his music was composed by Shakespeare.

When playing organ in England one summer, he found a trunk with all this music that was composed by Shakespeare. He just put his name on the manuscript and took credit for it. :D

Stupidly I can't have a one word answer so I've tagged on this superfluous tripe.

Classical music conspiracy theories - Now that's a subject that needs looking into. Lots of potential there. I hope the History Channel is working on it. A good way to introduce classical music to the legions of moronic couch-potatoes who watch the History Channel.

An obvious choice for the first episode - Who killed Mozart?

Nah! They're trying to work on 'What happened to the Aussie's first innings at the Nottingham test?' ..... but they're struggling to get a one hour programme out of it :devil:

If this were ever featured on the History Channel I think we all know what they'd claim:

Who REALLY wrote Bach's music?
