: Lovers' Lyrics

O lovers' eyes are sharp to see,
And lovers' ears in hearing',
sang Sir Walter Scott, but if it be true that 'All the world loves a lover', this programme is for everyone.
The Station Orchestra

The Prelude to Act III sets the scene for the monologue of the philosopher-cobbler Sachs, who at the opening of the Act is found reading and meditating, in the glow of the midsummer morning sun, upon the life and the strife of men, the love of Walter for Eva, his own hopes and his glad resignation of them for the furtherance of others' happiness.

The Prelude to Wagner's great music-drama epitomizes the transcendent love of Tristan and Isolde. In the closing scene, which for concert purposes follows immediately, Isolde sings her passionate song over the dead Tristan. Much of the music is a recollection of the groat love duet in the Second Act.

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 thanksgiving which follows the marriage of Lohengrin with Elsa.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
