Opera on 3


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Live from the Bristol Hippodrome
Christopher Cook introduces Verdi's gripping tale of love, betrayal and murder. This new production by James Macdonald is set in the political ferment of sixties
Washington, where the Duke and his rat pack are about to turn the world of the social upstart Rigoletto upside down.
Chorus and Orchestra of Welsh National Opera, conductor Patrick Summers Parti
8.15 Twenty Minutes: Martin Parr 's Bristol
Instead of the grainy black and white in which photographers usually depict
Britain and her subjects, Martin Parr uses daylight flash and colourfilm. The results are brutally honest, without a hint of nostalgia and often show his subjects in an unforgiving light. He presents his snapshots of Bristol and talks about his current project-taking photographs of mothers and daughters out shopping together at Bristol's out-of-town shopping centre, the Mall at Cribbs Causeway.

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.
