: Merlin

A spectacular performance of Isaac Albeniz's lost opera in Madrid's state-of-the-art Teatro Real. David Wilson-Johnson stars as Merlin, Stuart Skelton as Arthur and Eva Marton as Morgan Le Fay. Jose de Eusebio conducts.
Written 101 years ago, Merlin was intended as the first part of an Arthurian trilogy. Albeniz teamed up with amateur poet Francis Burdett Money-Coutts - who offered him a pension for life if the composer used him as a librettist- but died while working on part two, so the opera was never completed. Consequently this magical production is the world stage premiere.

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.
