It is Tonio, the clown, who comes before the curtain, to explain that the theme of his play is borrowed from real life, and that the actors, though they appear to bo acting, are but flesh and blood, with the passions of other men.
Valentine, brother of Marguerite, and his comrades are returning from the wars. As the rousing lilt of the Soldiers' Chorus dies away Faust enters in the company of Mephistopheles, who sings a mocking serenade to Marguerite. Valentine appears. He challenges Faust, the betrayer of his sister, to a duel. Valentine falls, mortally wounded.
At the inn of Lillas Pastia Carmen sings a gypsy song. Later, Escamillo makes a boisterous entrance, at the head of a procession of enthusiastic admirers. He sings the famous Toreador Song.
The opera's tragic climax is approaching.
Outside the church, where Santuzza has told Alfio of Lola's infidelity, Turiddu is drinking with his friends. Alfio enters. A challenge ensues. Soon the cry is heard, ' Turiddu is killed.'

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.

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.
