The Blue Bird, symbol of happiness or truth, is a rare and precious thing, very difficult to find. It is, perhaps, enough to seek it.
The children, Tyltyl and Mytyl having gone to bed, are visited by the Fairy Berylune , who tells them that she is anxious to find the Blue Bird so that she may give it to her sick child. She says she would like them to help her to find it and gives Tyltyl a magic diamond by means of which he is able to bring all things to life and provide them with souls. Light comes from the lamp; and Fire, Water, Milk, Sugar and Bread, and even the Dog and Cat, all come from their accustomed places. With Light as guide, they go on their quest, first to the Land of Memory, then to the Palace of Night, the Palace of Happiness, a Graveyard, the Kingdom of the Future, and at last, after many adventures, home again.








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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
