: West Coast Story: 1: Frontiers of New Music

The first of three programmes featuring the music of California.
The music of California has a freedom, daring and eccentricity all of its own.
Born from a combination of the traditional Western pioneering spirit, the legacy of many immigrant cultures and the boundless possibilities of new technology, it has had an impact far beyond state boundaries.
Early experimenters like John Cage and Henry Cowell shaped the language of contemporary music throughout America, and pioneers like Terry Riley and Morton Subotnik have influenced sounds both in the concert hall and in the rock auditorium. This film tells the story of the development of west coast music in this century, against the background of the Californian landscape, the Asian communities of San
Francisco and the cybernetic paradise of Silicon valley.
With contributions from John Cage, Terry Riley, John Adams, Lou Harrison, Frank Zappa, Charles Amirkhanian, Robert Erickson, Paul Dresher, Daniel Lentz, Morton Subotnik.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
