: The Art of..., Enrico Caruso

' The greatest singer of all time ', Caruso has been called, This statement of course can never be proved one way or the other; but what is true is that in the early years of this century Caruso came to stand for ' the opera singer ' as no other single artist could ever have done. Fortunately his rise to fame coincided with that of the gramophone and he has left many fine records taken from the 57 roles he had in his repertory.
In this programme Charles Osborne introduces some of these records and discusses the art and character of Enrico Caruso.

' Worthing has a straightforwardness. It is no place for tarting up and showing off, for fol-de-rols or camp. I like Worthing for being what it is. Only the very best butter on plain bread. No sauce but mint, on the leanest cold lamb.'

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.
