Music Programmer

programmer-portrait

Francis Mansell

Obsessed with music from the age of 12, Francis Mansell spent much of his two years at university learning far more about music than about Environmental Science, the intended subject of his degree – it was an unequal contest!

Ending up at the BBC Gramophone Library a couple of years later, Francis found himself among people who understood his obsession and stayed for 17 years, cataloguing new additions to this huge collection. Moving on in the late 1990s, Francis was offered work aas a programmer on his 40th birthday and jumped at the possibility of using all his accumulated knowledge for more creative purposes.
