: Composers of the Week:The Mighty Handful

(cl855-81). The young and precocious Mily Balakirev rejected the European-influenced music of his contemporaries and set about creating a modern, Russian style of composition. He soon attracted a group of disciples, nicknamed "the Mighty Handful". Today, Donald Macleod examines how Balakirev established himself in St
Petersburg and enlisted his first followers: Modeste Musorgsky and César Cui.

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.
