Conductor, Sir Thomas Beecham ,

At the beginning of Act 3 Wotan explains to Erda, Goddess of the Earth, that he and the old gods will abdicate and leave the world to the rule of Siegfried and Briinnhilde. The storm which accompanied Wotan's entry passes over, and Siegfried confronts the Wanderer, as Wotan is calling himself. With a blow of the sword he had forged himself from the splinters of his father's weapon, he cuts in two the old god's spear of world dominion, and plunges into the flames that surround the crag.
The scene changes to the summit where Briinnhilde lies asleep. Siegfried wakes her and she sings a joyous greeting to the light. Then, recognising the hero who had come to win her as his bride, she bids him welcome, and the opera closes with an exultant love duet.
Act 2 of ' Siegfried' was broadcast in the Regional programme at 8.1$

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.
