: 'Das Rheingold'

(Wagner)
Scene t. The Depths of the Rhine
Scene 2. An Open Space near the Rhine
Scene 3. The Cavern of Nibelheim
Scene 4. An Open Space near the Rhine
Conductor, ROBERT HEGER
Relayed from The Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
There is no break in the music of The Rheingold, though there are four scenes. The first is in the depths of the Rhine, where the Nibelung Alberich steals from the Rhino maidens, who guard it, the gold whose possession can make him lord of the earth. In the second scene the gods are contemplating the great castle, Valhalla, which the giants, Fasolt and Fafner, have built for them. The price of their work was to be Freia, goddess of Youth, but when Loge, god of Fire, tells of Alberich's theft of the gold, and of its magic powers, the giants are filled with envy. They agree to accept the gold, instead of Freia, but insist on holding her meanwhile as a hostage. The third scene is the Nibelung's cavern, where Alborich, by virtue of the Ring, has forced the other dwellers underground to amass a mighty treasure for him. Wotan and Loge appear, make him captive and lead him to the upper world, the scene changing once more to their rocky height in front of Valhalla. The treasure is forced from Alberich and handed over to the giants ; but when the Ring is taken from him, he bestows on it the curse which follows it throughout the reat of the talo. Its power is immediately shown as the giants quarrel and Fafner slays his brother. The drama comes to an end with the entry of the gods into their new home.

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.
