: The Bayreuth Ring: Das Rheingold

A music drama in four scenes by Wagner (sung in German)
The revival of last year's highly controversial centenary production. Patrice Chéreau, an unknown young Frenchman, produced this harshly realistic, anti-romantic interpretation in which Rhinemaidens appear as call-girls and the gods as grasping frock-coated Victorian capitalists. Another Frenchman, Pierre Boulez , conducted, This year the production was modified slightly but still outraged and offended many who saw it. In Rheingold the Rhine is not the seat of unsullied nature, but an industrial hydro-electric dam.

: The American 60s

In the second of two conversations in which American authors discuss their books on the changing intellectual scene in the United States, Morris Dickstein talks to PHILIP FRENCH about his widely acclaimed study of ' American Culture in the 60s ', Gates of Eden.
' What happened in the 60s,' Professor Dickstein argues, ' was one of those deep-seated shifts of sensibility that alters the whole moral terrain.' His book, which ranges from rock music to avant-garde fiction, takes a far more charitable view of the decade than Diana Trilling 's We Must March My Darlings, discussed last week,

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.
