ACT I
Relayed from the ROYAL OPERA HOUSE,

Cast:
THE outline of the story of Tannhauser, that thirteenth-century minstrel (' Minnesinger ') whose temptation and suffering Wagner has portrayed so vividly, is already familiar. Some details of the action in this Act may be useful.
ACT I
SCENE I. The interior of the abode of Venus
(Soprano), whose pleasure it is to attempt to entice the knights of the Wartburg Castle. In her arms lies Tannhauser (Tenor), one of the knights. He is wearying of her enchantments, and longs to return to earth.
SCENE II. In a valley of the Wartburg,
Tannhauser kneels at a wayside shrine. A shepherd (Soprano) pipes near by, and sings a happy song. All Nature is calm and beautiful.
Hunting horns now resound, and the Land-grave of Thuringia (Bass) enters with his attendant knights. Tannhauser was once one of their number, and they welcome him back, the first to do so being Wolfram, his close friend (Baritone). Tannhauser is at first ashamed to return, but when Wolfram tells him how Elizabeth, the Landgrave's niece, has pined in his absence, and that only his return can restore her, the erring knight is moved to consent.

ANDRÉ MAUROIS, who tonight gives
M. the talk that was originally planned to take place some time ago, is no stranger to our language, our customs, or our history ; he is, in fact, our chief interpreter in France, and his characters, ; 'Colonel Bramble' and 'Doctor
O'Grady,' his ' Ariel, or the Life of Shelley,' and his more recently published ' Life of Disraeli ' are equally well known to the reading public on both sides of the Channel. His opinions should make an exceptionally piquant talk.

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.
