THR story of Masaniello doals with a revolt in Naplos, in 1617. Masaniello is the leader of the revolution, and his hatred of tho oppressors is fanned by the wrongs of his sister, Fenella, at the hands of the Spanish Viceroy. The opera ends in tragedy for the chief characters. Masaniello goes out of his mind and is killed, and Fenella throws herself into the sea. An eruption of Vesuvius is a striking feature of the plot. Fenella, the heroine, is dumb, and the part was usually played by the chief dancer in the opera ballet, with gestures only. The opera is usually known abroad as The Dumb Girl of Portici.
The Overture, according to tradition, is made up of tunes from the opera itaelf.

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.
