: The Birth of an Opera

Don Carlos
This, the longest and arguably the grandest of Verdi's grand operas, was first performed in Paris on 11 March 1867. For 18 years after that the composer continued to revise it.
Andrew Porter has recently found in Paris not only a quantity of music which was cut before the Paris premiere but also a dossier of correspondence about the reworking of the opera over all those years.
Timothy West as Verdi Other parts DAVID MARCH
NIGEL LAMBERT , EMILY RICHARD
Musical illustrations taken from the recordings made by Decca, Deutsche Gramophon and HMV and played on the piano by ANDREW PORTER

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
