Voices for the World: 4: Geraint Evans


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Profiles of four leading British opera singers.

In which the celebrated Welsh baritone talks about his distinguished career in international opera, and sings excerpts from The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Otello, and Falstaff.
With contributions by Karl Bohm, Noel Goodwin, Reri Grist, Bernard Paumgartner,
Douglas Robinson
and the BBC Concert Orchestra
Leader, Arthur Leavins
Conducted by Edward Downes

At forty-six, Geraint Evans is in his twentieth year at Covent Garden, and has an international fame to match his great experience and expertise. The programme was filmed against three widely differing backgrounds - at Evans's home in Petts Wood, Kent, at Dynevor Castle in West Wales, and at last year's Salzburg Festival.
(Edward Downes and Douglas Robinson appear by arrangement with the General Administrator, Royal Opera House Covent Garden)

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.
