: SEXTET

IN any Selection from Rigoletto we are sure to find two or three tunes that. as soon as the work was produced (in Venice, three-quarters of a century ago), were whistled all through the city. We shall almost certainly hear the Duke's gay song about women, Quesla o o quella, telling how one is as good as another to him; his uncomplimentary ballad, La donna é mobile—Woman is fickle, and the ecstatic Caro nome, the love song of Gilda, the heroine, when she calls upon the ' dear name ' of her lover (the Duke, who has pretended to be a poor student). The detached, descending notes at the opening of this song make it easy to identify.

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.
