Part 2 Schubert
Sonata in c minor (D 958)

: Penthesilea

The first British performance of the tragedy by HEINRICH VON KLEIST (written in 1808) in a specially commissioned version by ROBERT NYE with Barbara Jefford
Martin Jarvis , Rosalie Crutchley Kathleen Michael and David Buck
Music and sound score by DAVID CAIN
Declared by Goethe to be ' the product of a diseased imagination,' Kleist's extraordinary epic play takes the legend of Achilles and Penthesilea in an unusual variant - setting the protagonists in a world where they meet both in love and in hate, neither fully understanding the nature of their desires or their objectives. Meanings are so inaccessible that the violent extremes cannot be unravelled one from the other. Truth and Deception, Reality and Illusion change and interchange, the very essence of Masculinity and Femininity is examined and questioned. Beauty and Bestiality go hand in hand in squalor and in splendour ' and those who seek to learn the whole truth find it eventually beyond the compass of the human mind. The Greeks

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 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 find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

This is a historical record of both 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.
