Opera in three acts
Music by Thomas Arne (died 177S)
Arne wrote his operatic masterpiece in 1762, using his own English translation of a METASTASIO libretto. It is a unique amalgam of the Italian and English styles; and the most ' national ' of the tunes were reproduced in numerous barrel-organ rolls. Haydn was delighted by it: he 'had no idea we had such an opera in the English language '. Listeners today may be similarly surprised. Mandane

: Drama Now

Delinquent
(Der Zogling) by HARALD MUELLER translated from the German by STEVE GOOCH
This new play by one of West Germany's leading contemporary playwrights was commissioned by an international group of radio stations.
Usch is a research student, preparing a thesis on patterns of life in ' the late bourgeois family '. At the same time she is experimenting in her own personal life. Her experiment is a 17-yearold delinquent called Tom. But when a distinctly ' bourgeois ' alternative appears in the form of Tony, a young architect and cdu candidate, her need to experiment grows rather less compulsive.

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.
