'I think,' wrote Patti, 'I was born trilling."
Certainly she was a vocal phenomenon. At the age of seven she was lifted onto a table and sang one of the most exacting arias In the repertoire, 'Casta Diva'from
Bellini's Norma. She was 16 when she made her operatic debut. In Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, and from then on, for more than 40 years, she thrilled audiences with the brilliance, purity and charm of her singing.

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.
