Prevention is better than cure.'
This is what we believe today, but in the Middle Ages little was known about the cause of disease, and nothing about how to stop infection. Then a great French doctor, Louis Pasteur , who lived from 1822 to 1895, found that germs cause most diseases. Today you will hear about his great discovery and how he showed that the germs could be defeated.

: Act 2 of Borodin's Opera ' PRINCE IGOR '

from the Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
The action takes place in the country of the Tartars in the 12th Century
Scene 1 : The outskirts of the Polovtsian camp
Scene 2: Another part of the camp
Scene 3 : Before the tents of Konchak
Cast
Chorus of Polovtsian maidens,
Russian prisoners, Polovtsian soldiers and slaves, and followers of Konchak
Conductor,
EUGENE GOOSSENS
Chorus Master, Robert Ainsworth
Producer, Harald Andre
The scene of Act 2 is laid in the Polovtsian camp, where Igor and Vladimir are held captive. After a haunting chorus of Polovtsian maidens, Konchakovna, daughter of the Polovtsian chief, sings a beautiful nocturne as she awaits her lover, the handsome young prisoner Vladimir. Russian prisoners pass, singing, and Vladimir appears. His first song is one of the most popular numbers of the whole opera.
After a love duet the lovers part, and then Igor wanders in, lost in gloomy thoughts. The treacherous Ovlur urges him to break his word of honour and escape, but he refuses. And finally the good-natured Polovstian chief Konchak appears, offers Igor his friendship, and sends for his slaves to dance and dispel his prisoner's melancholy. The Act closes with the magnificently barbaric Polovtsian Dances, often heard in the concert-hall.

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.
