: Composer of the Week: Faure

5/5. In 1871, the Société Nationale de
Musique was set up to promote the works of young French composers. By 1910 it had become heavily biased towards the music of the disciples of César Franck, and another group, the Société Musicale Independente, was set up in opposition. A few years later, Faur6 found himself in the rather bizarre position of being president of both groups. Presented by Donald Macleod. Violin Sonata No 1 in A, Op 13

: Jazz on 3

Wolfgang Muthsplel Trio/John Stevens Tribute The trio led by the Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel, with Brian Blade (drums) and Matt Penman (bass), recorded at the Vortex club in London earlier this year. Plus a tribute to British drummer John Stevens , who died ten years ago this week. As well as being a fine player, Stevens was a huge motivating force on the domestic music scene from the late 1960s to the early 90s. He brought musicians together, found venues and festivals for them to play in, encouraged younger artists, and in doing so, became a key figure in the development of the European avant-garde scene in the early 70s. Presented by Jez Nelson .

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.
