: Omnibus presents: The Fall of Venice

by Maurice Rowdon
with Vladek Sheybal as Casanova, John Ronane as the poet Angelo Maria Labia

"A tomb of noblemen in which a healthy people was locked up." This was how Casanova's Venice was described. But for a tomb it did pretty well. Carnival went on for six months of the year and, according to a Frenchman, Venice's nuns were the best lovers in the world. But then, in 1797, Napoleon marched in, and the carnival was suddenly over. A thousand-year-old Empire was dead.
Venice is falling again today, but this time physically into the sea. Did it fall both times because people didn't care enough?


Writer: Maurice Rowdon
Make-up: Liz Moss
Costumes: Valerie Spooner
Film Cameraman: Peter Bartlett
Sound: Bill Chesneau
Film Editor: Howard Billingham
Producer: John Gibson
Casanova: Vladek Sheybal
Angelo Maria Labia: John Ronane

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
