: ' THE CAFES OF PARIS'

Robert Segar
Robert Segar spent his student days in Paris and knows the city's cafe life as it really is-not as the tourist sees it.
He is interested particularly in the cafes that ' reflect the difference be.tween the Frenchman and ourselves '
-the cafes of Montmartre, where Bohemianism is now commercially organised, hut where you can still ' sing and throw shoes across the room and spill your neighbour's drink for fun ', the pleasant cafes of the shopping quarter with their awnings and wicker chairs and little tables, and the cafes of Montparnasse, harbouring a more prosperous Bohemianism than that of Montmartre.

: FRENCH PIANOFORTE MUSIC

played by Valerie Hamilton French piano music has a style and charm of its own and it owes very little, or nothing, to the influences of the great German composers of the nineteenth century. It has created its own tradition, which harks back to the time of Rameau and Couperin. This evening's programme is representative of modern French music, the most considerable composer being Debussy, whose influence on his contemporaries and successors, both as a player and as a composer, has been of far-reaching importance. Debussy was essentially a miniaturist, and one of the most attractive features of his music is its purity and delicacy of texture. His principal concern was the suggesting of vague and subtle emotional moods and the painting of half-lights and exquisite shades of colour. To this end Debussy resorted to the use of a highly original system of harmony based on the two whole tone scales which provides that pungent flavour, or rather ' atmosphere ', so characteristic of his music.

Billy Thorburn will be remembered as ' Uncle Jazz ' by listeners who tuned in to 2LO in the days of Savoy Hill. One of his most vivid memories is of a foggy day, ten thousand feet up in the clouds, when he played the piano in the world's first aerial broadcast, from 2LO, in the first twenty-two seater.

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.

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.
