Overture, The Flying Dutchman
Senta's Ballad (The
FlyingDutchman)
WHEN the curtain rises on the second act of Wagner's Flying Dutchman, wo see a room in the house of Daland, Senta's father. The walls are hung with pictures of ships and sailors and in a prominent place is a portrait of the Dutchman himself, grim and sinister. Senta, leaning back in her chair, has her eyes fixed on the picture, while her old nurse Mary and neighbour-girls are busy spinning. The girls plead with Senta for the old ballad of the Dutchman, and when the spinning-wheels are silent, she sings it. It is a fine air, which combines something of the simplicity of folk-song with the dramatic force of the story. It tells of the ship with blood-red sails and black masts, whose captain never sleeps and who will be delivered from his lifelong curse only if he can find a maiden to love him faithfully for always. At the end Senta sings of herself as the one whose love will save him, praying that an angel may guide him to her.

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.
