: The Champagne Opera

Narrator Denys Hawthorne
The first performance of the greatest of operettas, Johann
Strauss's Die Fledermaus, was given in Vienna 100 years ago on 5 April 1874.
Strauss was already famous the world over as a conductor and composer of his own dance music. He had written over 350 waltzes, polkas and marches. By the time he was 40, his ambition was to succeed as an opera composer. Fledermaus was the third of his many operettas and was only a mild success: but with it Strauss achieved his masterpiece.
The programme includes recorded extracts from Die Fledermaus and other music by Strauss, performed by the VIENNA PHILHARMONIC and VIENNA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRAS, Conducted by WILLI BOSKOVSKY.


Narrator: Peggy Branford
Conducted By: Willi Boskovsky.
Producer: Alan Haydock

: As Old As You Feel

The great dread of the old and infirm used to be the work-house; more recently it has been the geriatric ward. But modern nursing techniques concentrate on educating and caring for the, elderly so that they can return to an active life in the community.

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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
