: 'IS THAT THE LAW?'

' The Disobedient Servant'
A pedestrian has been injured by a horse and van belonging to a grocer.

: BAYREUTH FESTIVAL CONCERT

from the Festspielhaus, Bayreuth
The Bayreuth Festival Orchestra
Conductor, Heinz Tietjen
Chorus master, Friedrich Jung
Producer, Emil Praetorius
Act 3 of Wagner's Opera
' LOHENGRIN '
Scene 1, The Bridal Chamber
Scene 2, The Banks of the Scheldt
The poetical motive pervading Lohengrin is the mystical story of the Holy Grail, while the dramatic element is based on the prohibited question of Lohengrin's identity, the asking of which must be fatal to his bride Elsa.
The Third Act completes the tragedy of Lohengrin. Elsa presses for an answer to the fatal question of Lohengrin's name and in the last scene we are taken back to the banks of the Scheldt with King Henry and the assembled knights as at first. Lohengrin solemnly reveals his identity and bids farewell. The swan and boat return. Lohengrin kneels in prayer. The swan disappears and Gottfried released from Ortrud's spell stands by his side. Elsa in despair at Lohengrin's departure dies in Gottfried's arms, while the boat, now drawn by a white dove, disappears in the distance.

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.
