L'Italiana in Algeri


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.
From the Grand
Theatre, Geneva,
Rossini's opera to a libretto by Angelo Anelli. The lecherous Bey of Algiers wishes to divorce his own wife, force her to marry his Italian slave Lindoro, and take another Italian, the newly arrived Isabella, who is searching for her enslaved lover. Treachery, double-crosses and fiery passions all enliven this comedy, before Isabella commits her final act of subterfuge, duping the Algerians and spiriting away the Bey's European slaves. Sung in Italian. Introduced by Donald Macleod.

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.
