(conducted by SHACKLETON POLLARD )
Felix Alexandre Guilmant (1837-1911) was born at Boulogne. The son of an organist, he studied under his father and at the age of fifteen was appointed organist of St. Joseph, and at twenty choirmaster of St. Nicolas. In 1871 Guilmant became organist of the church of the Trinité, and later his name became widely known as one of the foremost virtuosos of the time-he visited England, America, and many of the leading European capitals. He taught at-the Paris Conservatoire and the Schola Cantorum, which he founded with Bordes and d'Indy. His organ compositions consist of two symphonies, eight sonatas, and twenty-five sets of pieces.

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.
