: The Early Music Show

Cristofori's Florentine Piano
Around 1700 Bartolomeo Cristofori, keeper of instruments forthe Medici family in Florence, had a brilliant idea-take a harpsichord, but instead of plucking the strings with plectra, hit them with little hammers. Catherine Bott meets instrument maker Denzil Wraight, who has recreated one of Cristofori's early pianos. And Ella Sevskaya performs a recital on it.

: Opera on 3: Live from the Met: Siegfried

The third opera in Wagner's Ring Cycle concentrates on Siegfried, the son of brother and sister Siegmund and Sieglinde, whose illicit love affair led to all sorts of trouble in the second opera, Die Walkure. Siegfried has been raised by the dwarf Alberich's brother Mime, who wants to use him to regain the ring from giant-turned-dragon Fafner.
Siegfried kills Fafnerwith his father's sword and takes the ring. The dragon's blood enables Siegfried to understand a woodbird, who warns him of Mime's scheming and then leads him to a maiden asleep on a hilltop, surrounded by fire. This is none other than Brunnhilde, the Valkyrie who helped her half-siblings Siegmund and Sieglinde in their affair. She is, therefore, Siegfried's aunt. Nonetheless, Siegfried strides through the fire to claim Brunnhilde as his bride. Presented by Stephanie Hughes.

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.
