: Live from the Met

The Queen of Spades
Tchalkovsky's opera of fate, love and a three-card trick, in Elijah Moshinsky 's new production, which has proved to be one of the highlights of this year's Met season. Based on a short story by Pushkin, the opera portrays the two obsessions of Hermann, a Russian soldier: his love for
Lisa and his desire to learn the secret of the cards, known only to Lisa's grandmother. The pursuit of these obsessions leads, inevitably, to tragedy. Sung in Russian.

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.

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.
