' France in the Field '
E. M. STÉPHAN
'I come from Brittany, two of my uncles were farmers, and when 1 was a boy one of my great joys was to spend a few days at one of my uncles' farms.' ..
So that great broadcaster,
Emile Marie Stephan , will tell you, and when you listen to his talk you will not doubt that he knows what he is talking about. ,
You will get a very good idea of what the Breton farmer grows and how he lives. You will hear all about the big wheat-growing region called Beauce, between Pans and the Loire... And, more, you will be able to tell your friends and uncles and aunts the big difference between
French farmers and English farmers, and between Britain and France.
The hedgeless fields, the small farmers who own and work their own land, the endless vineyards in the south round Bordeaux-you will be able to see them almost, and the one thing that will remain will be a wish to see them actually, as Monsieur Stephan in his talk has described them to you.

: 'TOSCA'

Acts 2 and 3 of the Opera by Puccini from the Royal Opera House,
Covent Garden
The action takes place in Rome,
June, 1800
Act 2: Scarpia's Room in the Farnese Palace
Characters in order of appearance
Baron Scarpia Sciarrone
Spoletta
Maria Cavaradossi
Floria Tosca
Shepherd Boy Gaoler
Choir-Soldiers
The cast includes
Beniamino Gigli , Luigi Rossi Morelli, Aristide Baracchi , Octave
Dua, Booth Hitchin
Conductor, Vittorio Gui
Chorus Master, Robert Ainsworth
Producer, Charles Moor
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.
In Act 2 Cavaradossi, who has been captured, is brought into Scarpia's dining-room for cross-examination, but as he denies everything he is taken to the adjacent torture-chamber. Upon her arrival Tosca, too, remains adamant to all Scarpia's questions until, hearing Cavaradossi's cries, she reveals Angelotti's hiding-place. Having gained his point, Scarpia tells her that as her lover is an accomplice he must be shot. He offers Tosca the alternative of his instant death or her own dishonour. She decides on the latter, but he must write a pass enabling Cavaradossi and herself to leave the country. Scarpia orders a mock execution and writes out the pass. As he approaches to embrace her, Tosca stabs him. Taking the passport from his hands, she hastens to the prison.

Act 3: The parapet of the Castle of Sant'Angelo
In Act 3 Cavaradossi is seen writing a letter of farewell on the battlements of Sant'Angelo prison. He soliloquises over the past. Tosca comes to explain that dummy bullets are to be used for the execution. The firing party take up their positions. Cavaradossi falls. Tosca gives the signal for him to get up, but the execution is a real one. Guards rush up to arrest Tosca for the murder of Scarpia. She pushes them aside and throws herself over the parapet.

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.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
