MOZART'S last Opera, The Magic Flute, has one of the strangest plots possible.
The young Prince, Tamino, goes through various adventures in trying to win the beautiful Pamina, daughter of the malignant Queen of Night. Ho is alternately helped by Three Genii and tempted by Three Ladies, these last servants of the Queen of Night. Papageno, a quaint, practical-minded bird-catcher, is also in search of a wife.
.Act II opens with a solemn Temple ceremony.
Sarastro, the Chief Priest, and other Priests, accept Tamino and Papageno for initiation.
In the next scene, Monastatos (Tenor), a Negro slave, who has designs upon Pamina (Soprano), finds her asleep. He is interrupted by her mother, the wicked Queen of Night (Soprano). Later, both are frustrated by Sarastro's arrival.
The rest of the Opera must be summed up in a few words. The Priests impose a test of silence on Tamino and Papageno, which the loquacious bird-catcher finds tiresome. All the chief characters have now been introduced except Papagena, a charming little Bird-Woman, who is won by the bird-catcher after some trouble, including an attempt of his to hang himself.
Tamino leads Pamina safely through fire and water by the enchantment of a Magic Flute.
At last all ends happily, the two pairs of lovers being greeted with general acclamation.

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.
