: La Stupenda! Celebrating Joan Sutherland

An evening celebrating the artistry of the great Australian soprano Joan Sutherland , who is 80 years old this month. Her exceptional talent was internationally recognised in 1959 when she appeared in the title role of Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor at the Royal
Opera House in London. Hailed as La Stupenda by fans in Venice the following year, she has remained one of the most endearing and popular divas of our time, and her long career continued until 1990. Presenter Martin Handley is joined by former director of the Edinburgh Festival Brian McMaster , singer and broadcaster Catherine Bott and the Australian academic and writer
Peter Conrad to discuss the many aspects of the voice and character of this extraordinary musician, and music critic Rodney Milnes offers a personal view of her recording legacy. Bach Aria (Cantata No 147)

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.
