A FAR prettier title to this overture is the real one, Overture to the story of the lovely Melusina. The tale is drawn from a picturesque old French legend, and tells how Melusina, a fairy, imprisoned her father in a mountain in Northumberland. Her punishment was swift and terrible ; for one day in each week she had to exist as half-woman, half-serpent from the hips downwards, like a mermaid.
CARMEN must be one of the most familiar of all operas to the majority of listeners. It is surprising how many upon being questioned have confessed that Carmen was the first opera they ever'saw, and nobody who has ever heard the work staged can fail to feel an intense affection for it. These numbers are all amongst the most familiar in the opera and occur in most of the selections and fantasies made up from its music.
THIS very popular Rhapsody, probably tho nearest to real Spanish music ever written by a Frenchman not excepting even Bizet, has helped very largely to make Chabrier's reputation abroad, whatever may have contributed to that in Franco. In point of fact, however, Chabrier is always spoken of as one of the principal forerunners of the modern French school. Among other compliments that have been pnid to this Rhapsody is that by Waldteufel, who wrote a set of waltzes upon the principal themes.

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.
