BEETHOVEN'S sympathy was always readily enlisted in favour of any cause which held out a promise of relief to the downtrodden and oppressed, and the heroic figure of the young Egmont in Goethe's play, struggling for the freedom of the Netherlands against the tyrant Philip II of Spain, made a strong appeal to his imagination. That the real Egmont, as history's ruthless hand has drawn him for us. was a much less heroic figure than Goethe would have us believe, matters but little now. Posterity owes him thanks at least for a great play, and for some of Beethoven's noblest music.
COMPOSED among the woodlands of Weber's home in Holstein, his opera Der Freischiitz has always been regarded as a masterpiece, and Wagner's admiration for it is known to everyone. Berlioz was also enthusiastic in its praise, calling it ' Art that is divine.' The central point of the story is a contest of marksmanship, and the plot turns on an old forest legend. It tells of an evil spirit which, in exchange for a man's soul. will give him magic bullets which are bound to hit their mark, irrespective of the aim. The Seventh Bullet was the name given to the opera on its first performance here in London in July, 1824, two years before Weber died.

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.
