Variations on the life and music of Giacomo Puccini
The first of two programmes 1: Music without Words with Norman Rodway as Giacomo Puccini and Jill Balcon as his wife, Elvira
I am a passionate hunter of wildfowl, libretti and women and the shyest quarry of all is a good libretto. (GIACOMO PUCCINI) In 1924 Puccini entered the Institut de la Couronne in Brussels to undergo painful radium therapy for a throat tumour. Shortly before he did so, he was reconciled with the conductor, Arturo Toscanini , with whom he had quarrelled some time previously.
Toscanini now agreed to conduct the world premiere of Puccini's twelfth and as yet unfinished opera, Turandot, at La Scala, Milan. But would it ever be finished? Also taking part:
PAULINE LETTS , RONALD HERDMAN
TIM REYNOLDS and EDWARD DE SOUZA Compiled by MICHAEL Oliver Puccini's music-box by JONATHAN GIBBS in the BBC Radiophonic Workshop

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.
