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.
Delibes is usually associated with light and tuneful ballet music, but he composed one important and very successful opera—Lakmé. The story is an Eastern one, and Lakme, the heroine, is a Priestess ot Brahma. Her sacred grove is violated by an English soldier, who falls in love with her, but he is seen by Lakme's father, a priest, who swears vengeance. He comes upon the Englishman in the brilliant scene of an Eastern bazaar, and it is there that Lakme sings the Bell Song. The angry priest stabs the young man, and Lakme carries him off to a secret place in the woods to nurse him back to health. There his friends find him and carry him off to duty, gladly though he would remain with his charmer. Lakme eats the fruit of a poisoned tree and dies just as her father finds her.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
