TO the history classes of schools,
Miss Rhoda Power 's talks have become well known as occasions for bringing the record of facts to life and visualizing the human side of things dealt with in abstract generalities in the ordinary books. This term she will continue the series on the same lines as before. dealing now with the boys and girls of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, up to the time of the first steam trains.

HITHERTO, the Great Stories told in this series have been drawn from classical Greek mythology and from the Arthurian legend, the oldest myth of our own land. This season Miss Rhoda Power will tell stories from a less-known body of legend—that of the Norse lands, which had a Pantheon and a lore of their own, the characters of which correspond fairly closely to the gods of ancient Greece, but the spirit of which is totally different, and strangely unfamiliar to most of us.

IN The Rhine-Gold, the first of the four
Music Dramas making up the Ring cycle, we aro told how the ring was made from stolen gold, and how Wotan, King of the Gods, stole the ring. The evil consequences of those thefts are shown in the whole tetralogy. Of The Rhine-Gold we are to hear the first Scene.
The action takes place at the bottom of the river Rhine.
When the curtain rises Rhine maidens are seen swimming about, sporting together and singing. These are the guardians of the treasure of gold. To them comes the dwarf Alberich. He sees the gold glowing in the depths of the river, and the maidens tell him that whoever can make a ring from the gold will be able to conquer the world. Only a man who forswears love can succeed. Alberich determines to pay the price, curses love, and, snatching the gold, bears it away.

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.
