: WORKSHOP

Tele-Marteau
Le Marteau sans Maître 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. with Yvonne Minton (mezzo-soprano)
Aurele Nicolet (flute)

: ROWAN AND MARTIN'S LAUGH-IN

A new series of programmes of lunacy and laughter starring, as your hosts
DAN ROWAN and DICK MARTIN featuring a regular company of crazy characters and a bewildering array of guests
Produced by GEORGE SCHLATTER and ED FRIENDLY for N.B.C.
BBC-2's ' Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In ' is a phenomenon of comic compression. Somebody wrote to tell me that the average show contains a minimum of 300 wisecracks in fifty minutes. Watching the first one I thought that there must be at least 300 scriptwriters; actually I lost count of the final credits, but concluded that there were in fact eight or ten writers.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
