: Composer of the Week:Ernest Chausson (1855-99)

1/5. A Parisian Childhood
Ernest Chausson was a serious, thoughtful and somewhat melancholic man. The only surviving son of a prosperous building contractor, he was educated at home, away from the company of other children, in an adult and highly cultured environment. Chausson later acknowledged this as having had a lasting effect on him. Donald Macleod explores the relationship between these early experiences and his music.

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.
