Ravel's Piano Concerto was written in 1931 and was given its first performance in England by the Royal Philharmonic Society in February, 1932. The music of this concerto is a brilliant piece of writing, which, except for the rather more lyrical slow movement, is for the most part devoid of that sensuous romanticism so characteristic of Ravel in his earlier works.

Pianoforte: Lelia Gousseau

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.
