Raoul Pugno (1852-1914) was bom in Paris and studied composition, organ, and piano at the Conservatoire. As a pianist he became world famous, particularly for his beautiful Mozart playing, and one of the great musical events of that period up to the war was his sonata recitals with Ysaye. During his lifetime Pugno held several important posts, such as organist of Saint Eugene, chorus master at the Theatre Ventadour, and professor of harmony and piano at the Paris Conservatoire. It is a curious fact that Pugno did not write a great deal of music for the piano, but turned his attention chiefly to operas and ballets.
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.
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.
