Senta's Ballad (The Flying Dutchman)
SENTA, who sings this ballad in the second act of The Flying
Dutchman, is the daughter of Daland, a Norwegian sea-captain. The scene is a room in which several girls are spinning, but Senta is not working. Her gaze is centred upon a picture of the Flying Dutchman hanging on the wall of the'room which rouses the curiosity of her companions. Presently she relates to them the legend of the Dutchman and his phantom ship. The music begins with the motif of ' The Curse,' and continues with the ' Storm Music' already foreshadowed in the overture. Senta narrates how the Dutchman is condemned to sail the seas for ever unless he can find a woman who will be faithful to him to death. With great emotion she now declares that such a woman can be found and that it is she herself who will deliver the Dutchman from his terrible curse.

WALTER WIDDOP and Orchestra Trial Songs :
In snowbound Hall; Now begin
(The Mastersingers)
WALTHER'S Trial Songs occur in the first Act. He has declared his wish to qualify for election to the Guild of Mastersingers and in order to judge his quality the assembled Masters consent to hear what he can do. The first Trial song is a declaration by Walther that Nature is his teacher; he sings well enough to be given a real trial. He sings again and is marked according to the rules of the Guild, which rules he breaks so repeatedly that the Masters have no option but to reject him.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
