The Alexander of the flute with no new worlds to conquer...
American reviewers have sung the praises of the French flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal for over two decades. He's probably made more records than any other soloist, he's been given personal credit for making the flute the popular instrument it is today, yet in Britain, he remains something of a neglected personality.
Musician Andrew Marriner meets Jean-Pierre Rampal and, with help from William Bennett, Elena Duran, Isaac Stern and many recordings, presents a portrait of this celebrated flute player.
Written and Produced by:
Includes reviews of The Woman in Black - A Ghost Story, a new novel by Susan Hill and her collection of classic ghost stories; and Fly
Away Home by William Humble , a domestic comedy starring
Hywel Bennett and Diana Quick at the Lyric Studio, Hammersmith.

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.
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.
