Piano Sonata in E flat minor played by Kathleen Long
Paul Dukas (1865-1935), whose best-known woik is L'Apprenti Sorcier, occupied a leading position in the musical life of France. A fastidious craftsman, he withheld from publication and even destroyed a number of works that failed to satis'y turn. His Piano Sonata, when it first appeared in 1901, was described as a landmark in the history of French music. The influence of Cesar Franck is felt to some extent, particularly in the last of the four movements; but the sonata as a whole is an original and powerful composition, brilliantly written for the piano.

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
