ATTEMPTS have been made at one time and another to put Berlioz's early opera, Ben. venulo Cellini, into the repertory, but it has never really survived its initial failure. Berlioz must have recognized the hopelessness of expecting better luck with it, for with the idea of preserving at least some of the music, he composed this brilliant and popular overture on themes from the opera, mostly taken from the carnival scene.
THIS excerpt opens at early morning of the day following Siegfried's awakening and wooing of Brynhilda on the fire-surrounded rock. The music illustrates the dawn, followed by the rising of the sun and the appearance of Brynhilda and Siegfried at the entrance of their cave. Siegfried is to seek new glories in further adventure and Brynhilda, speeding her hero, gives him her war-horse Grane, and watches his progress through the circle of fire, down the hill and through the valley. He intends his journey shall take him to the Rhine, and no journey was ever more gorgeously and graphically illustrated in terms of music.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
