Composer of the Week Jules Massenet

Synopsis

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.
1: In Thrall to Eros. Although he wrote a wide range of works for the theatre, from light comedies and fairy-tale fantasies to orthodox grand opera, Massenet's main appeal lies in his skill at using music to depict erotic obsession: give him a doomed relationship or a nasty case of sexual dependency, and he was away. Today's programme concentrates on two of his best-known and most popular operas -
Manon and Werther- and also takes a nervous sideways look at La
Navarraise. Presented by Rodney Milnes. Discs
Repeated from last Monday

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.
