: Maria Callas - Living and Dying for Art and Love

Art and life became as one for Maria Callas in 1964 when, embroiled in a destructive love affair with Aristotle Onassis , she took the title role in Franco Zeffirelli 's production of Puccini's Tosca. The following year she played the part for the last time, which also proved to be her final performance on stage. Act Two, showing on BBC4 at 9pm, is the only dramatic role by Callas to have survived on film. Here, audio footage from Acts One and Three is played against a background of stills from her rendition. Those present at the time, including
Zeffirelli, Placido Domingo , conductor Antonio Pappano and impresario Alan Sievewright , recall an unsettled period in Callas's life. Showing as part of the Summer of Opera season. Director Steve Cole ; Producers Chris Hunt and Alan Sievewright

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
