3: Between the Wars. With
Donald Macleod. Soon after his release from the army in 1921, the composer collaborated with Jean Cocteau and Raymond Radiguet on the "buffo comedy" Le Gendarme Incompris. Poulenc later destroyed it, although it was rediscovered 25 years after his death. He also formed the most important musical partnership of his life with baritone Pierre Bernac , with whom he was to perform around the world for the next quarter of a century.

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.
