A performance by Birmingham Royal Ballet of Sir Peter Wright 's new production of this popular ballet, with its memorable score by Leo Delibes. The production was recorded in May this year at London's Royal Opera
House in Covent Garden to mark the 125th anniversary of the first performance in Paris.
The ballet tells the tale of Swanilda and Franz, bickering young lovers fascinated by the beautiful stranger who sits reading on the balcony of Dr Coppelius's house. Discovering who she is leads the lovers and theirfriends into trouble as they break into the workshop of DrCoppelius.

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.
