Relayed from the Theatre Royal

: Excerpts from Popular Operas

A PERFORMANCE of Masaniello in Brussels, on August 25, 1830, has been held partly responsible for the outbreak of the revolution in which the Dutch were driven out of Belgium. Be that as it may, it is generally agreed that this is the finest of all Auber's many (and popular) Operas. Instead of being merely pretty and tuneful, as are so many of his works, Masaniello has dramatic power and spirit. Wagner praised the work highly.
The Overture is chiefly made up of tunes from the Opera itself.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
