"I thank you with all my soul and to an eternity for causing me to write Tristan" - Richard Wagner to Mathilde Wesendonk.
Perhaps in no artist, certainly in no composer, can there have been so intimate a connection between his work and his love affairs as there was in Wagner. Mathilde Wesendonk, of all the many muses in his life, inspired him above all others. Years later he wrote: "She is and remains my only love... it was the sonnet of my life". Narrated by Richard Bebb
(Next week: "The Orange Sunrise", Wagner's love affair with Cosima von Bulow)

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.
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.
