: Torquato Tasso

by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
A new translation by Alan and Sandy Brownjohn
with Michael Pennington as Tasso, David Buck as Prince Alfonso, David Suchet as Antonio, Eileen Atkins as the Princess, Rosalind Shanks as Leonora
"Here other men must suffer grief in silence,
A god gave me the power to speak my pain.
The poet Tasso lives in the palace of the enlightened Duke Alfonso in 16th-century Ferrara. He has finished his masterpiece, 'Jerusalem Liberated' and is
symbolically crowned by his admiring patrons. Goethe presents a highly-cultured Court, dedicated to the pursuit or artistic excellence. The play is centrally concerned with the discrepancy between the artist and the rest of the world. Music by Michael STEER. Directed by JOHN THEOCHARIS
(David Suchet is an Associate Artist of the HSC)

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.

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.
