: ' Siegfried'

(Wagner)
Act III. Scene I: A wild region in the forest
Scene II: The summit of the Valkyries' Rock
Cart in order of appearance :
Conductor, ROBERT HEGER
Relayed from The Royal Opera House, Covent
Garden
A whole generation of the world of men has passed since the close of The Valkyrie. The young Siegfried has grown to vigorous manhood as ' the hero who knows no fear,' and at the beginning of the third act Wotan explains to Erda, Goddess of the Earth, that he and the old gods will abdicate and leave the world to Siegfried's and Briinnhilde's rule. The storm which accompanied Wotan's entry passes over, and Siegfried confronts the Wanderer, as Wotan is calling himself. With a blow of the sword he had forged himself from the splinters of his father's weapon, he cuts in two the old god's spear of world dominion, and plunges into the flames which surround the crag. The scene changes to the summit, where Briinnhilde lies asleep. Siegfried wakes her and she sings a joyous greeting to the light. Then, recognising the hero who had come to win her as his bride, she bids him welcome, and the opera closes with an exultant love duet.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
