Verdi's // Trovatore, which is one of the composer's most popular operas, was first produced at the Apollo Theatre, Rome, on January 19, 1853. An account of the performance was given in the Gazetta Musicale and the critic stated that ' Last night II Trovatore was produced in a theatre overflowing with people ... the music transported us to heaven ; and, of a truth, it could not be otherwise, because this is, without exaggeration, heavenly music. The composer deserved this splendid triumph, in that he has here written music in a new style imbued with Castilian characteristics. The public listened to every number in religious silence and broke out into applause at every interval, the end of the third act and the whole of the fourth arousing such enthusiasm that their repetition was demanded '.
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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
