If you’re a Sky subscriber you can now set your recorder for the documentary and all four Ring Cycle operas (including a live Götterdämmerung on Sunday). The timings are as follows but be warned, if you have a standard Sky box all five programmes will probably take up over 55% of the disk space if you record in HD. Time to start deleting those old episodes of Corrie you’ll never get round to watching anyway!
Note: Sky have adjusted the start times slightly and the documentary film is embedded in Das Rheingold on the listings.
