: Behind the Scenes at Covent Garden

The gold and the scarlet of the auditorium at the Royal Opera House are familiar enough, but this film takes a unique look at the very different world that lies behind those great plush curtains. Backstage we see something of the ingenuity, imagination and sheer hard work that enables a staff of more than 1,000 to stage some 250 performances of opera and ballet throughout the year in what is still an antiquated Victorian theatre.
Given complete freedom to film both at rehearsals and on stage during performances and all over the theatre, from dressing rooms to prop stores, BBC cameras followed the various stages of a dozen productions. There's a first night of Othello. Sir Frederick Ashton rehearses with Margot Fonteyn. Anthony Dowell and Merle Park dance in Romeo and Juliet. The Marriage of Figaro, Peter Grimes and The Sleeping Beauty are all in rehearsal. We see the involvement of stagehands, costume-makers, designers, singers and dancers and hear from them what it is like to work in one of the world's greatest opera houses.

: Multi-Racial Britain

The second of ten films on ways of improving race relations. Crosstalk
How many people in teaching, social work, personnel departments, banks and hospitals, etc, are left with a sense of frustration or failure when dealing with Asians and West Indians as parents, clients or job candidates? The way English is used, as well as differences of culture, can make for misunderstandings. If not recognised as such, these can lead to irritation, or can reinforce prejudiced attitudes on both sides. This film analyses some of the commonest of these communication difficulties.
Producer john TWITCHIN

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
