Die Entfiihrung aus dem Serail
Eighteenth-century Turkey is the setting for one of Mozart's most charming comic creations. Spanish nobleman Belmonte arrives on the Turkish coast to search for his fiancée, Konstanze, who is being held captive together with her maid Blondchen and Belmonte's servant Pedrillo in the palace of Pasha Selim. When an escape attempt fails they are brought before the Pasha and condemned to death. The events that follow take an unexpected turn.

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.
