Gotterdammerung By Richard Wagner
Directed by Richard Jones , the Royal Opera's new Ring cycle for the 90s - the most talked-about production in recent British operatic history - reaches its climax. Siegfried and Brunnhilde's love struggles to survive the corruption of the human world and the machinations of the evil
Hagen, the half-human son of the Nibelung dwarf
Alberich. Siegfried's murder and Brunnhilde's culminatory self-immolation lead inexorably to "the twilight of the Gods".
Introduced by Piers Burton -Page.

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.
