Strauss's ' Ein Heldenleben' (A Hero's Life) is played through without a break, though structurally it is made up of six sections, each of which illustrates either the character of the hero or an episode in his life.
Section I : ' The Hero'. The music depicts his character and introduces the theme associated throughout the work with the hero himself.
Section II : 'The Hero's Opponents '. These are the worldly elements of baseness against which his spirit strives until, in the end, it conquers.
Section III: The Hero's Helpmate'. The ideal helpmate is represented by a solo violin. She is capricious, difficult to woo, but finally surrenders to love. A lyrical and impassioned section. But towards the end of it the hero's enemies can be heard muttering in the distance, and a blast of trumpets summons him to battle.
Section IV : The Hero's Field of Battle '. This is a terrific piece of music, and although the conflict goes on actually only in the hero's mind, there is noise enough for a real battle. Encouraged by his helpmate the hero wins the fight ; his enemies retire and the hero, given breathing space, considers the after-math.
Section V: 'The Hero's Works of Peace '. He reviews the past in the light of his artistic development. It is in this section that Strauss introduces a number of extracts from his earlier symphonic poems and operas. It is in this sense that the work is autobiographical.
Section VI : The Hero's Flight from the World '. Despondency and doubt give way to hope and serenity; reminiscences of a stormy life break in on his peace, but love and inward happiness prevail in the end. His task fulfilled, and lost in memories, he withdraws from life.
Tickets can be obtained from the British Broadcasting Corporation, Broadcasting House, Portland Place, W.1, Messrs. Chappell's Box Office, Queen's Hall, Langham Place, W.1, and the usual Agents. Prices: 7s. 6d., 6s., 5s. (reserved), 3s. (unreserved). Promenade (payment at doors only), 2s.

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.
