: Gluck Bicentenary: Don Juan

or The Stone Guest
A programme celebrating the 200th anniversary of Gluck's death. An authentic re-creation of an 18th-century ballet masterpiece danced on the stage of the beautiful Court Theatre of Drottningholm in Sweden. Choreography by REGINA BECK-FRIIS
Music by Christoph Willibald Gluck
with artists of the Royal Swedish Ballet Orchestra of the Royal Swedish Opera House conducted by Thomas Schuback
This is a balletic version of the dramatic story of the seducer who is carried off to hell by the furies.
First performed in Vienna in 1761, it was a turning point in the history of dance: the first 'ballet d'action' - a ballet with a strong story line.
In its close fusion with the dramatic action, Gluck's music was as revolutionary as the dance: 'an astonishing piece', writes MARTIN COOPER , 'comparable only with Mozart, as great as Mozart in its greatest moments and never unworthy of comparison with him.'

: The Trireme Quest

Fifty years ago Professor
John Morrison dreamed of rediscovering the secrets of the Greek Trireme. The design of this legendary warship - powered by 170 oarsmen and with a deadly battering ram - had long been forgotten. But the triremes had once given the Greeks supremacy in the eastern Mediterranean and allowed their culture to flourish.
This year, after a lifetime of detective work among the art and literature of the ancient world, this gentle Cambridge scholar saw his dream come true. A replica, based on his findings, was built - and a trireme put to sea in the Aegean again for the first time in 2,000 years.

: The Film Club

Derek Malcolm presents two films about male obsession
That Obscure Object of Desire
(Cet obscur objet du desir) starring
Fernando Rey
Carole Bouquet Angela Molina
A middle-aged Frenchman leans out of a train to empty a bucket of water over a girl on the platform. Then finding himself the object of curiosity, he explains to his fellow travellers the story of his unrequited passion for Conchita.
In Luis Bunuel 's last film the desirable Conchita - played by two actresses alternately firing and quenching the ardour of the hapless
Mathieu - exercises a form of sexual terrorism. Her victim is so mesmerised that he is unaware of the actual acts of terrorism that follow him.
Based on the novel by PIERRE LOUYS
Directed by LUIS BUNUEL
(A French film with English subtitles)

Man of Flowers starring Norman Kaye Alyson Best
Chris Haywood
Charles, a wealthy, reclusive collector of art and lover of rare flowers, remains lost in his childhood when he was adored by his mother.
Attempting to come to terms with the real world, he undergoes analysis and pays an artist's model to strip for him. But the complexity of the human condition and the ugliness of modern art continue to baffle him.
Paul Cox 's film, by turns profound, comic and erotic, was hailed as one of the finest Australian films of the 80s.
Screenplay by PAUL COX , BOB ELLIS

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.
