Just over sixty years ago Berlioz produced an opera from which the Royal Hunt and Storm is an extract. This ' Symphonic Entr'acte ' represents a scene in ' a virgin forest in the neighbourhood of Carthage '. Naiads appear and bathe. The hunt is heard in the distance, gradually drawing nearer, and the naiads vanish. Hunters cross the scene. A storm approaches. While the storm increases, Ascanius, son of Aeneas, gallops past, followed by other huntsmen. The storm approaches its height and night falls, Dido and Aeneas, hunting, arrive and take refuge in a cave. Wood Nymphs appear, singing ; also Fauns and Satyrs, all of whom dance a grotesque dance in the darkness. A little stream in the rocks becomes a noisy cataract. Lightning strikes a tree, and finally the ..hole scene is obscured by dense clouds. The storm at last abates and the clouds scatter. The music calls for no description. The above conveys its spirit.

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.

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