RICHARD STRAUSS 'S one-act opera, Salomé, was first produced in Dresden in 1905. The version of the Biblical story that he used was a German translation of the one written by Oscar Wilde , originally in French, for Sarah Bernhardt , and the tense, grim, rather preciously poetic drama that Wilde made of it was one very capable of drawing from Strauss music that had much of the same quality. The stark horror of the ugly episode is no more hidden by the silky veil of Wilde's text than it is by Strauss's sensuous, revealing music, and yet the musician has contrived to enhance the hideous fascination of the repellent story as no other composer of his day could have done. ' The Dance of the Seven Veils ' is the dance performed by Salome before Herod, in return for which she is to have from him anything she may desire. She has only one desire, the head of Jochanaan, and with that wish fixed in her heart she begins to dance. Her movements, goaded by the wild, sensuous music, grow in frenzy, till throwing aside one by one the seven veils that conceal her beauty, she casts herself at the end prostrate at the feet of Herod.

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.
