In an article on Rameau's Castor and Pollux, which appeared in the RADIO Times, it was pointed out that Rameau's genius, like that of Franck and Verdi, came to a late flowering, for Castor and, Pollux (only his second opera among twenty-four stage-works) was produced when its composer was fifty-four, in 1737. It hed the stage for about fifty years, after which it suffered neglect until the present century.
' No knowledge of the opera's plot is necessary for the enjoyment of the old-world dances that recall beauties that Fragonard drew , low-hanging, wax-lit candelabras, and an assembly of fops and beaux where
Voltaire's latest stinging epigram was passed around ; in a word, all the glories of the ancien regime But ft mav help to know that in the prologue of the opera there appears
Minerva, with attendant Arts,
Venus accompanied by her Graces ,
Love with his train of Pleasures, and Mars.'

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.
