Act II of Puccini's Opera 'Tosca'
Cast
Chorus and Orchestra of La Scala, Milan
Conducted by CARLO SABAJNO
The grimly tragic story of Tosca, founded on Sardou's drama, is one of Rome in the days of the first Napoleonic Wars. Cavaradossi, an artist in love with Tosca, a celebrated singer, has befriended Angelotti, a revolutionary, and has got into the toils of Scarpia, Chief of Police.
When the second act begins, Cavaradossi is in prison, and Scarpia has summoned Tosca to tell her so. When she comes, he opens a door through which she can hear the agonised screams of her lover under torture. If Tosca will reveal the secret of Angelotti's hiding place, so he tells her, the torture shall cease. Tosca tells him and then Scarpia, having learned what he wished to know, announces that Cavaradossi will be shot. Only if Tosca will yield herself to him, can her lover's life be saved, and the execution turned into a mock one with blank cartridges instead of ball. She demands a passport for herself and Cavaradossi to leave in safety, and when Scarpia has written it, he steps forward to take her in his arms. She stabs him, and, setting a crucifix beside his body, hastens to set her lover free.

: THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA (Section C)

(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by WARWICK BRAITHWAITE
NIKA MONASTRI (soprano)
We know Ottorino Respighi, a composer of high repute in Italy, by his original orchestral works, The Fountains of Rome and The Pines of Rome, but more particularly by his arrangement of several Rossini pieces under the title of La Boutique Fantasque. In this comparatively new suite, The Birds, the composer has made another group of arrangements from amongst the works of certain seventeenth century composers who have none of the modern reluctance to call a bird a bird. Here, then, is real bird music-the birds actually sing. The plan of the suite is as follows :
No. i. is a short prelude by Pasquini framing a little shop-window display of the other numbers in the suite ; No. 2 paints an expressive little picture with a dove-cot in the middle distance -the cooing of the doves on flutes and clarinets is unmistakable; No. 3 is Rameau's famous imitation of the hen i who has clearly laid an egg and is very cock-a-woop about it; in No. 4 an ' anonymous English' nightingale sings very sweetly; and No. 5' is Pasquini's Cuckoo, also famous, in which the insistent bird sings longer than any of , the others. All this pretty chirping is brought to an end with a repetition of ] Pasquini's Prelude.

: The Week's Good Cause

An Appeal on behalf of The Carnarvonshire and Anglesey Infirmary, by Megan Lloyd George, MP.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Miss Megan Lloyd George, MP, [address removed]. Ten years ago the Carnarvonshire and Anglesey Infirmary at Bangor was a cottage hospital; today it is the largest general hospital in North Wales. 'A beautifully equipped hospital on a perfect site'. This was how Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal described it in July last on the occasion of the opening of the New Wing. During the past ten years over £60,060 has been expended on new buildings, equipment, and furniture, but there remains today an overdraft of £20,000.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.
