: Opera on 3

"A dark day dawns for the gods" in the final opera of Wagner's epic Ring cycle. The brand-new production for the Royal Opera House is presented from Covent Garden by Stephanie Hughes , in conversation with producer Keith Warner , conductor Antonio Pappano and the three lead singers: John Treleaven , John Tomlinson and Lisa Gasteen.
Prologue and Act 1 Siegfried, sent off on deeds of valour by his wife Brunnhilde (daughter of Wotan), turns up at the castle of the Gibichungs where Hagen lives with his half-siblings Gunther and Gutrune, who are plotting to obtain the gold ring of power. Siegfried is drugged with a magic potion and tricked into falling for Gutrune; he agrees to bring Brunnhilde as a wife for Gunther.
Royal Opera House Chorus and Orchestra, conductor Antonio Pappano Acti
8.15 Act 2 Brunnhilde is furious and helps
Hagen and Gunther to plot Siegfried's murder.
9.45 Act 3 Hagen kills Siegfried and Gunther, and Brunnhilde rides into Siegfried's funeral pyre with the ring on her finger. Thus the Rhinemaidens get their gold back, the Rhine itself overflows, Valhalla burns, and the old order of the gods is destroyed.

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.
