: In at the Deep End

Six films in which Chris Serle and Paul Heiney take it in turns to plunge in at the deep end and learn the hard way about a completely new world.
Opera Singer
Chris Serle 's musical experience is confined to banging on the drums with the Crouch End All Stars in his local pub. Now he has to master the world of grand opera. His aim is to sing a role with the English
National Opera on the stage of the massive London Coliseum.
Coached by Sir Geraint Evans and advised by producer Jonathan Miller , conductor Sir Georg Solti and the world-famous Italian baritone, the late
Tito Gobbi , Chris finally lands the part of a 90-year-old butler in The Gambler by Prokofiev. He must learn to project his voice over an 80-piece orchestra and to do his own character make-up. Life becomes more difficult still when, shortly before opening night, Chris breaks his foot in a motorcycle accident. But the show must go on. As 2,500 opera lovers pack the auditorium, he nervously awaits his first call on stage....

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.

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.
