: Placido Domingo's Tales from the Opera

Hollywood Bohemians. Tonight'sfilm offers a rare glimpse of Placido
Domingo - the only one of the Three
Tenors who also conducts - rehearsing andconductingthe 1993 Los Angeles production of Puccini's La Bohème. Working alongside Domingo in his operatic debut is veteran Hollywood director and choreographer Herbert Ross. Domingo carefully guides a young cast through the emotional complexities of their roles, singing every part as he rehearses the orchestra. Ross employs more aggressive tactics. What emerges is an unusual portrait of different approaches to making opera, and an insight into Domingo's extraordinary love forthe music.

: Reputations

Albert Schweitzer -
Darkness and Light
Dr Schweitzer became a 20th century hero when he turned his back on a brilliant career in Europe to run a jungle hospital in the heart of Africa. But in the 1960s the controversy started: was he a saint or racist, a colonialist or a humanitarian? This film visits Schweitzer's hospital in the African jungle to hearfrom his daughter and people who worked with him. Italso explores the radically different views of Schweitzertoday - views which reflect the problematic relationship between Africa and the West. See today's choices.

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.
