From St. Andrew's Hall, Glasgow
Part 1
Alban Berg's opera Wozzeck, which is to be broadcast from Covent Garden next Friday, tells the tragic, story of a simple, half-crazed soldier who murders his unmarried wife and afterwards commits suicide. The three concert extracts are concerned mainly with the woman, Marie, and her child by Wozzeck. In the first, she stands at her window watching the soldiers march by; afterwards she sings the child to sleep with a lullaby. In the second, she is sitting in her room at night reading the Bible story of the woman taken in adultery, and is stricken with remorse at her own unfaithfulness to Wozzeck. The third extract begins with Wozzeck's death by drowning and leads to the final scene of the opera: the children at play, hearing that Marie has been murdered, run off to see what has happened, leaving Marie's son playing by himself, and unaware of the tragedy that has overtaken him.

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.
