Opera in three acts by WAGNER
(sung in German)
This is at once the most overtly German and the most universal of Wagner's music dramas. No high-flown romantic aspirations, no plumbing of metaphysical depths - just a 'straightforward tale about ordinary people, as in Mozart's Figaro, with, surprisingly, an essay on artistic principle at Its core. It is Wagner's classical masterpiece, and for many the most lovably human piece he ever wrote.

Four talks by MICHAEL PODRO 2: Perception v Recognition
Theories of art since the 18th century have questioned the importance of subject-matter in painting, and made various claims for art as revealing a distinctive use of our mind and perception.
In the second talk of this series, Michael Podro. Reader in Art at the University of Essex, considers two contemporary theories, one stemming from Goethe and the other from Schopenhauer, which are characteristic of writing on art through to the 20th-century manifestoes.

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.
