with Susan Sharpe.
1.00pm Opera Matinee Herodiade
Massenet's grand opera on the story of Salome, in a Vienna State Opera performance with Placido Domingo as the Baptist. Based on a short story by Flaubert, the opera retells the devastating biblical tale of Herod's erotic obsession with Salome, and her love for the captive John the Baptist. The final crucial player in the drama is
Herodias, Herod's second wife and (it emerges)
Salome's mother. It is this discovery that triggers the opera's tragic and bloody conclusion.

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.
