: The English Ring

Visually stunning
(THE TIMES)
Often seems just crass ... clumsy
(THE GUARDIAN)
Puzzling mixture of literalness and bleak, ineffective abstraction
(NEW YORKER)
The Bayreuth Festival production of Wagner's The Ring of the Nibelungen, staged by Sir Peter Hall with designs by William Dudley and conducted by Sir Georg Solti , was one of the most eagerly-awaited events in this year's operatic calendar. This new production, to mark the 100th anniversary of Wagner's death, was to be a ' romantic ' staging which remained faithful to Wagner's text.
Paul Vaughan talked to some of those involved in this production, plagued by technical problems and cast changes which perplexed the critics and the Bayreuth audience.
Producer BRIAN BARFIELD (A revised Kaleidoscope repeat)

: The Unbroken Line

One hundred and fifty years after Wilberforce. every government in the world sets its public face against slavery. The last to outlaw the chains was the tiny African state of Mauritania ... but that was only three years ago. Today, human rights campaigners are no less anxious about the millions of victims of forced labour than were their 19th-century predecessors concerned about legal slaves, because as the Secretary General of the Commonwealth says. there is still ' an unbroken line of servitude '.
Adam Raphael investigates examples of debt-bondage, child labour, serfdom, women sold into prostitution and men press-ganged into sweated-labour camps.

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.
