: Introduction to and Acts I and II of Humperdinck's Opera ' Hansel and Gretel'

Relayed from Sadler's Wells Theatre
After the overture to Humperdinck's opera, the curtain rises on Hansel and Gretel in their humble home ; they are romping and singing when their mother returns to find them neglecting the tasks she had set them. She packs them off to the woods to gather berries, and no sooner have they gone than the father comes home ; he has.had a lucky day selling his brooms. When he hears where the children are, he is horrified, and soon makes his wife share in his terror ; a witch, he tells her, lives in the wood, who eats little children. They rush off together in search of Hansel and Gretel.
Act II is in the wood where the children have lost their way. In answer to their prayer, as they lie down to sleep, angels come down from on high to guard them.

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.
