The Wizard Who Worked Wonders translated and freely adapted by DAVID TURNER from El Mdoico Prodiaioso by PEDRO CALDER6N DE LA BARCA (1600-81) with David Buck Lisa Harrow
Patrick Troughton and Lockwood West
Written two years after his most famous play Life is a Dream,
Calderón's version of the Faust legend portrays a complex view of religion, morality, nobility and contrasting peasant realism. In spite of its superficial setting in third century Antioch, the attitudes and characters are pure 17th-century Spanish. Cyprian sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for magical knowledge, but Satan in the end is powerless against his adversaries' faith and free will.
Incidental music composed and conducted by DAVID CAIN and played by THE PRAETORIUS CONSORT
Director CHRISTOPHER BALL OOREEN WALKER (contralto) Special effects hy the BBC Radiophonic Workshop directed by MARGARET ETALL (First broadcast on R3)

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.
