: Composer of the Week: Poulenc

5: The Post-war Years. Following the end of the Second World War Poulenc began some determined career building. He and his recital partner, the baritone
Pierre Bernac , undertook a heavy schedule of international touring, encountering enthusiastic receptions in Britain and the USA. While in America he met
Lucien Roubert. the man who became a source of inspiration for both the Stabat Mater and the opera Les Dialogues des
Carmélites. America also provided the commission for one of Poulenc's most enduring wind pieces, the flute sonata, and for one of the last works he wrote, the Seven Tenebrae Responses. The success of the Carmelites prompted Poulenc to try his hand at another opera, this time a one-act play by Jean Cocteau , La Voix Humaine. Presented by Donald Macleod.

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.
