CHERUBINI was born in Florence in 1760, and died in Paris in 1842. In the important development which music underwent in those years, he had himself a large share; the church and theatre music of France in particular, to which he devoted most of his mature works, owe him more than it would be easy to compute. In its French form this opera is known as Les Deux Journées (The Two Days) and the story tells how the Water Carrier, who is the hero, within two days extracts his patron from the wrath of the powerful Cardinal Mazarin. In accordance with the tradition of the age, the Overture begins with a slow and rather pompous introduction, and then there is a lively section with two main tunes. Both can be easily recognised as they appear.

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
