Live from the Met: Die Walkure
Placido Domingo and Katarina Dalayman lead the cast in the best-loved opera from Wagner's epic Ring Cycle. Siegmund and Sieglinde are brother and sister - but by the time they discover that, they've fallen in love. Their father Wotan, the arrogant leader of the Gods, is forced to disown them by his nagging wife Fricka, who's horrified by their incestuous relationship. But then comes the crucial turning-point of the whole Ring Cycle. Brunnhilde - the Valkyrie of the title, who's another of Wotan's army of illegitimate children - is so moved by Siegmund's love for Sieglinde that she decides to defy her father and help the lovers. Presented from New York by Margaret Juntwait.

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.
