ERNANI tells the story of a bandit chief who is really an outlawed Duke. He loves
Elvira, who unwillingly has been betrothed to another. She has a third suitor, the King of Spain. In the extract we are to hear, Elvira's betrothed finds in her presence both the King and the bandit, and bewails alike her inconstancy
(as he supposes), and his folly in believing her vows.
CHERUBINO, the lovelorn, youthful page in The Marriage of Figaro, worships his mistress, the Countess, but has an eye, too, for pretty Susanna, her maid. The Count, who also is attracted by the maid, finds Cherubino in her company more than once, and decides pack him off to join the Army.
In this Air Figaro, the Count's valet, chaffs the boy, who is not a little perturbed at this new turn of events.

: ' BRAINS'

A Play by MARTIN FLAVIN
Presented by STUART VINDEN
From Birmingham
An island in the South Seas. A lew dune screens the beach. To the eastward is a stunted and oddly twisted coco palm and confronting it a conspicuous and grotesquely shaped formation of a coral rock. The late afternoon sun is hot and glaring when a boat is beached, and in single file three men approach. One of them, MacGregor. looks long and appraisingly at the palm, and from it to the rock, measuring the ground between with his eye.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
