Composer of the Week:Emmanuel Chabrier


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.
(1841-94). This week Donald Macleod looks at the I ife and work of the French composer Emmanuel Chabrier , who spent most of his adult life as a civil servant at the Ministry of the Interior. Chabrierwas a spectacular pianist, prone to assaulting the instrument (which often came off worst), and a friend and confidant of Parisian artists. He was at his best in music which celebrates life and its absurdities and he was loved and admired by many of his contemporaries.

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.
