: Bomarzo

An opera in two acts. Libretto by MANUEL MUJICA-LAINEZ
Music by Alberto Ginastera
(sung in the English translation by LIONEL SALTER )
A New Opera Company production in association with English National Opera direct from the London Coliseum
Bomarzo is the second opera by the Argentinian Alberto Ginastera. Based on a novel by Manuel Mujica-Lainez it is written in the form of an extended Bashback.The hunch-back Duke of Bomarzo lies dying in the garden of grotesque exotic stone monsters that he has created and relives his tortured, frustrated life. Ginastera has created a powerful score, intensely dramatic and rich in aural imagery, to complement the turbulent, vicious and sometimes erotic world depicted on stage.

: * With a Little Help from My Friends

by Robert Brain
By European standards the Bangwa of the West Cameroon have a very strange system of personal friendships Dr Brain, during a year's anthropological study with the tribe, observed that for the Bangwa. a man's best friend is chosen through the accident of birth. He argues that this system with its ritual and ceremony has much to offer Western culture. 'Much has been written of human aggression - but little of altruism: the smile, not the clenched fist, is an example of instinctual behaviour.'

: * Bomarzo

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.
