The story concerns BF Pinkerton, an American naval officer stationed in Nagasaki in 1900, who has arranged a marriage to Japanese geisha girl Cio-Cio-San, known as Butterfly. He undertakes a wedding with her, despite warnings by US consul Sharpless. Pinkerton returns to America, but the faithful Butterfly waits, refusing to believe he has abandoned her.

Live coverage of the third round of the Masters. Augusta provides the beautiful setting for the first major of the year, as the world's finest golfers compete to win the coveted Green Jacket.

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.
