Synopsis

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.
Tonight Humphrey Burton presents The Quest for Reginald Goodall
The first television portrait of one of Britain's finest conductors, now 83 and one of the greatest living interpreters of Wagner. Yet until he was 67 virtually nobody outside the operatic profession knew his name, and even within the opera world he was thought of as a back-room boy, a coach rather than a conductor.
However, in 1968 came The Mastersingers at Sadler's
Wells, which Bernard Levin described as 'one of the most outstanding musical revelations of modern times'. The Ring followed at the English National Opera and 'Reggie' has become a legend in the opera world.
Taking part in this film is the Orchestra of the Welsh
National Opera, whom Goodall conducted for their recent production of The Valkyrie. Also taking part are:
MAISIE ALDRIDGE, JOAN CROSS

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.
