: The Human Voice

The second of three films featuring great voices of today.
Hildegard Behrens - A Working Portrait
Fifteen years ago the name of an unknown singer burst upon the international opera stage when Herbert von Karajan engaged
Hildegard Behrens to sing Salome at the Salzburg
Festival. Since then, her rise to stardom has been spectacular. She has been hailed as one of the great dramatic sopranos of our time and her passionate involvement with her roles has made her a favourite of conductors and directors alike.
A very private person, she has allowed viewers to follow the preparation and performances of some of the most exciting opera productions of the past year: strauss's Elektra at the Paris Opera under Seiji Ozawa ; Marie in BERG'S
Wozzeck at the Vienna Opera under Claudio Abbado and Brunnhilde in WAGNER'S Ring cycle at the Munich Opera under Wolfgang Sawallisch. Interviewed by Peter Adam ,
Hildegard Behrens talks about her extraordinary career and her fascination with these demanding roles: 'I always want to expand to reach the limits of my capacity. I sing Salome and Wozzeck as bel canto as possible and Mozart and Beethoven with as much true expression and guts.' Film editor FRANK BURGESS Producer PETER ADAM

: The Film Club: Strangers in Town

Mary McMurray , director of The Assam Garden, introduces two films about outsiders trying to break into closed societies.
The Girl from Lorraine
(La Provinciale) starring Nathalie Baye With no prospect of a job in her home town,
Christine decides to try her luck in Paris. She soon discovers that success has more to do with sex than qualifications. Swiss director Claude Goretta takes a look at everyday Paris to reveal the reality behind its image-conscious facade.
Screenplay by CLAUDE GORETTA
(A French-Swiss film with English subtitles. First showing on British television) and at 11.55
Skyline starring
Antonio Resines
Gustavo arrives in New York from Spain with photographs he hopes will pave the way to a contract with a prestigious news magazine. He has the key to a rented apartment with a telephone that never stops ringing, attends language classes dutifully and tries to make sense of a society with incomprehensible habits. Fernando Colomo 's gentle comedy, based on the director's own experiences, was a huge hit in New York.
Directed by FERNANDO COLOMO (A Spanish film with English subtitles. First showing on British television)

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.
