: ' GIOVANNA D'ARCO '

A lyric drama in a prologue and three acts by Temistocle Solera
Music by Verdi
Chorus and Orchestra of Radio Italiana, Rome
(Chorus-Master, Roberto Benaglio )
Conductor, Alfredo Simonetto
(Recording made available by courtesy of Radio Italiana, Rome)
Scene: France,, between. 1429 and 1431 Prologue
Sc. 1: A large courtyard in the castle of Domremy
Sc. 2: A shrine in the forest near
Domremy
Act 1
Sc. 1: A field of battle near Rheims Sc. 2: The garden of the palace at
Rheims
This opera, which has for its subject the life and death of the Maid of Orleans, is one of Verdi's earliest: it was written in 1845, when he was thirty-two, and produced that year at La Scala, Milan. The libretto, by Solera, takes certain liberties with historical fact, representing Joan as in love with the Dauphin, and shirking the -final conflagration by letting her die of wounds sustained in battle. The opera was a success at its first performance, but it has since disappeared from the repertoire. D. C.

: MR. FACING-BOTH-WAYS

John Bryson , Fellow of Balliol College, Oxford, talks about the Victorian poet Arthur Hugh Clough
Clough's works have recently been published in a new critical edition. Among the new material in this edition is the complete version of the poem ' Dipsychus,' in which Clough revealed his own divided nature. Mr. Bryson comments on Clough's two personalities-his intellectual doubt and indecision, and the gay assurance of his light satiric verse.

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.
