BBC Theatre Chorus
(Chorus-Master, John Clements )
BBC Theatre Orchestra
(Leader. Alfred Barker )
Conducted by Stanford Robinson
Story told by Stephen Williams
' Die Fledermaus means literally ' The Bat,' and we learn that one of the characters, Dr. Falke, once went to a fancy dress ball as a bat. But that has happened some time before the opera and need not concern us: all we need to remember is - that bats are those queer creatures that fly by night and that this sparkling operetta deals with their human counterparts. It takes us back, in fact, to nineteenth-century Vienna, a Vienna that faced every political crisis by dancing and revelling and flying by night-which is as sensible a way of facing political crises as any other. ' Die Fledermaus tells us a light-hearted, irresponsible story in which, among other things, a truant husband flirts with his disguised wife at a fancy-dress ball, and Strauss has set it to music as merry as the popping of champagne corks.
— Stephen Williams

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.

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