' How news gets into the newspapers' by KENNETH ADAM
Something exciting occurs in a country town or village; a local correspondent 'phones it through to a London newspaper, where it is rewritten and transformed into red-hot news. In this dramatic interlude, in a setting of telephones, messengers, and all the bustle of a newspaper office, listeners are to hear a typical instance of how news gets into print.

: Glyndebourne Festival

Act 2 of Mozart's Opera
'DIE ENTFUHRUNG
AUS DEM SERAIL'
(' The Seraglio ') frcm the Glyndebourne Festival

The action takes place on the coast of Turkey, in the 16th Century

Producer, Carl Ebert
In a RADIO TIMES article on Mozart's The Seraglio Scott Goddard condenses the story of Act 2 as follows: ' Act 2 begins with a diverting scene between Osmin and Blonde wherein he commands her, the captive slave, to love him, the master. He lets it be understood that this is according to Turkish custom, and it is equally clear that he most potently desires it. She, very pert and thoroughly English in her refusal to be tamed, leads him a dance and brings him to a state bordering on hysteria. As he rushes off in comic despair, Constanze enters, and after discussing with Blonde their sad, precarious condition, breaks out into the splendid aria "Martern aller Artern" (Torments of every kind) ...
A scene between Blonde and Pedrillo' follows, and then Constanze enters and is joined by Belmonte. The four lovers thereupon sing a lengthy dramatic ensemble beginning with the raptures of reunion, changing to a semblance of sadness when the men question the fidelity of the women, finishing with the relief and gaiety of a general forgiveness and understanding. The act ends with the escape planned and agreed upon.'

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
