by ZYGMUNT KRASINSKI
Adapted by STUART RIFFITHS from the translation by M. w. COOK With music by BANS HEIMLER
Gabriel Woolf. David March and Stephen Murray
This play, which first appeared in 1834, is generally regarded as one of the most important works of the romantic period in Eastern Europe, one of the major classics of Polish dramatic literature. Zygmunt Krasinski (1812-1859) is one of the great Byronic poets of Poland's heroic 19th century. The play not only dramatises the hero's conflict between high ideals and the sordidness of real life but also, prophetically, confronts him with the revolutionary forces of the mass uprising of the following century embodied in a great rebel leader who foreshadows Lenin and Stalin.

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.
