Workshop: Tele-Marteau


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Le Marteau sans Maitre by Pierre Boulez has been described as the most influential piece of music to be written in the last twenty years. Igor Stravinsky called it the one undisputed masterpiece of the post-war era. Tonight Workshop presents an analysis and performance of Le Marteau sans Maitre, specially adapted and designed for television - hence, Tele-Marteau.
This film demonstrates Boulez's ideas that music can be played in a number of different combinations or orders. For the first showing of Tele-Marteau the nine sections of musical analysis will be shown together, followed by the nine movements of music which they complement. If however the film is shown again the order can be extensively shuffled, and each different running order should provide a different viewpoint.

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.
