Donald Macleod introduces Wagner's tragic 1848 opera Lohengrin, recorded at the Royal Opera
House last month. He is joined by Wagner scholar John Deathridge to discuss the work's significance and its very special place in Wagner's output. Lohengrin has been Elsa's champion in a duel. He offers to marry her on the condition that she never ask his name or where he comes from. After their marriage she finds this promise impossible to keep and so he has to leave, though not before revealing that he is, in fact, a knight of the Holy Grail with a sacred mission.

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.
