THE Sacred Festival Drama Parsifal was
Wagner's last work. In it, he again treats of the legendary relic of the Eucharist, the Holy Grail (the cup in which the Saviour's blood was received at the Crucifixion), which he had brought into his earlier opera Lohengrin.
In Parsifal the guardian of the Holy Grail has sinned, and sustained a wound from the Sacred Spear which will not heal. He and his Knights are in distress. Blessing comes to them once more through Parsifal, an innocent youth, the ' Pure Fool' who resists temptation.
The excerpts, Klingsor's Magic Garden and the Flower-Maiden's Scene, really form one continuous scene. Klingsor is an evil magician who, angry at his exclusion from the sacred knighthood, has created an enchanted castle and garden. Here, with the help of Kundry, a beautiful woman, and her attendant Flower-Maidens, he tempts the Knights. Parsifal is led there, but is proof against the enchantments and wiles of Klingsor and Kundry and her Maidens.

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.

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.
