Siegfried Idyll
Introduction to the Third Act of 'Lohengrin'
THE Siegfried Idyll, as most hearers know, is not an extract from one of Wagner's Operas, but an independent work, composed as a birthday present to his wife, after the birth of her son, Siegfried (who was named after the hero of the Ring cycle of dramas). The music contains several tunes from the Ring, and one which is an old German cradle song.
WAGNER regarded the legend of Lohengrin, the Knight of the Holy Grail, who comes to champion the wrongfully-accused maiden, Elsa, as symbolical of universal spiritual truths.
The Prelude to Act III of the Opera gives the atmosphere of festivity and thanks-giving which follows the marriage of Lohengrin with Elsa.

Sachs' Monologue ('Craze, craze'), from 'The Mastersingers '
TTANS SACHS , the cobblerpoet of Nuremberg, is championing the cause of the young knight Walter, whom some of the pedantic
Mastersingers are chary of welcoming to their Guild. Early in the morning of Midsummer Day Sachs sits in his room, a great volume on his lap, and meditates on men's incessant, bitter strife with one another, and considers how he may turn it to the ends he has in view-furthering Walter's fortunes with the Guild, and helping the youth to win the maiden he loves.
ORCHESTRA
The Ride of the Valkyries, from ' The Valkyrie ' 9.5 Topliss GREEN and Orchestra
THE Third Act of Wagner's Opera is laid in the Valley of the Wartburg, at evening. Wolfram, Tannhauser's friend, approaches. He loves Elizabeth, but has effaced himself- on seeing how greatly she and Tannhauser love each other. He has seen her praying by a wayside shrine for the absent knight, whose return from his pilgrimage of penitence is now expected ; and, after she has gone. Wolfram takes his harp and sings of her to whom ho must soon bid farewell, never more to see her.

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

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
