: The Ring from Bayreuth: Siegfried

A music drama in three acts by Wagner (sung in German)
After forging the sword Nothung and overcoming fearful dangers, Siegfried awakens Briinnhilde and claims her as his bride.
BAYREUTH FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA conducted by HORST STEIN
(Bavarian Radio recording) Act 1 A cave in the forest
4.0* Pilgrimage to Beethoven A short story by RICHARD wagner adapted by CHARLES osborne
It was in 1840, as a young man living in Paris, that Wagner wrote this fictional account of a visit to Beethoven. The two men, in fact, had never met: Wagner was 14 when Beethoven died. But the story is more than a literary curiosity: it reveals a great deal that is perhaps surprising about its author.

with Sean Barrett as James Cherry
Jeff Wanshel, still in his early 20s, is one of the most brilliant young American playwrights. Tonight's play was staged at the Lincoln Center, New York, in 1970. In it he displays a highly personal brand of grim surrealist humour.

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.
