In the original version of Gounod's Faust produced in Paris at the Theatre Lyrique, the only ballet was in the Kermesse scene of the second Act. Ten years later the composer revised the work for production at the Grand Opera, and the tradition of that theatre demanded something more elaborate in the way of ballet. The two authors of the libretto accordingly raided the second part of Goethe's Faust, untouched for Gounod's original opera, and made use of the revels of the Walpurgis night. There, in Goethe's play and in this revised version of Gounod's opera, Faust meets many of the famous women of old, Cleopatra, Helen, the Trojan Women, and other personages of myth and legend.

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.
