Sachs' Monologue ('Craze, craze'), from 'The Mastersingers '
TTANS SACHS , the cobblerpoet of Nuremberg, is championing the cause of the young knight Walter, whom some of the pedantic
Mastersingers are chary of welcoming to their Guild. Early in the morning of Midsummer Day Sachs sits in his room, a great volume on his lap, and meditates on men's incessant, bitter strife with one another, and considers how he may turn it to the ends he has in view-furthering Walter's fortunes with the Guild, and helping the youth to win the maiden he loves.
The Ride of the Valkyries, from ' The Valkyrie ' 9.5 Topliss GREEN and Orchestra
THE Third Act of Wagner's Opera is laid in the Valley of the Wartburg, at evening. Wolfram, Tannhauser's friend, approaches. He loves Elizabeth, but has effaced himself- on seeing how greatly she and Tannhauser love each other. He has seen her praying by a wayside shrine for the absent knight, whose return from his pilgrimage of penitence is now expected ; and, after she has gone. Wolfram takes his harp and sings of her to whom ho must soon bid farewell, never more to see her.
Overture to The Flying Dutchman '

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.
