Conductor, E. Godfrey Brown
Albert V.'Froggatt (baritone)
A new interest attaches to the present performance of any excerpt from Eugene Onegin since Tchaikovsky's finest opera is to be revived this season at Sadler's Wells Theatre in London, and it is quite possible that acts from it will be broadcast. This waltz occurs in the second act of the opera at a ball given in honour of the heroine on her birthday. While the waltz is going on two of the characters, Onegin and Olga, are engaged in a flirtation. In the opera the waltz is followed by a quarrel between Onegin and another character, Lensky, which, in the last act, has a tragic consequence. But the waltz is self-contained and carries no hint of any emotion but that of delight in the dance.

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.
