Opera in two acts Music by Bellini Libretto by CARLO PEPOU

In response to a commission from the Teatro San Carlo. Naples, Bellini prepared a two-act revision of his last opera, adapted to the available singers - in particular Maria Malibran , the intended Elvira. But this revised version had to wait until 1986 for its first production, during which these records were made.
The action takes place in a Puritan fortress near Plymouth at the time of the Civil War. (tenor) (tenor) (soprano) (bass) (tenor) (bass) (mezzo-soprano)

: And Then There Was Us

Three programmes about the origins of modern humans 3: That Animal Called Man
'We must not make the past a slave of the present.... we must look at ourselves as just another mammal, not as the crown of creation.' Hindsight and conceit have been the curse of thinking about evolution. Now a new body of theory is emerging which treats our origins strictly as Darwin would have wished.
Colin Tudge found participants at a conference in Cambridge willing to see our most sacred possessions - intelligence and creativity - as aids to our survival at home as well as in the wild.

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.
