Inspired by Myth

Orpheus was the great musician of Greek myth. When he played his lyre, he could command all nature. He was music-maker to Jason and the Argonauts and at the centre of a religious cult. But the best known story is about what happens when Eurydice. Orpheus's true love, dies from a snake bite. Orpheus goes in search of her, charms the keepers of the underworld with his music and brings her back to life only to lose her again with a backward glance. It is a tragic journey which has inspired generations of composers. Oliver Taplin is joined by opera director
David Freeman to discuss the ways this tale has been realised in music, from Monteverdi's opera to Camus's film Black Orpheus. Producer Susan Marling

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.
