Relayed from The Old Vie
Scene : Pinkerton's House near Nagasaki
Cast in order, of appearance :
Conductor, LAWRANCE COLLINGWOOD
Producer, SUMNER AUSTIN
Lieutenant Pinkerton, an officer of the United States Navy, arrives at Nagasaki . in the course of his duties. It is here that he meets Cho-Cho-San, known as Madam Butterfly.
Goro is a Japanese marriage broker, to whom Pinkerton goes to draw up an agreement concerning his forthcoming marriage to Butterfly, for whom he has a passing infatuation. Goro assures him that the marriage is only binding so long as he continues to live with his wife.
In the meantime, Madam Butterfly has forsaken her gods to become Christian, and is scorned by her relations, who filially denounce her. To Pinkerton comes Sharpless, the American Consul at'Nagasaki, who tries to dissuade him from this marriage, and points out that Butterfly is very serious and is under the impression that she is entering a life contract—but Pinkerton does not listen to him. The marriage takes place, and is followed by .a feast, wherelier uncle, The Bonze, finally curses her. The Act ends with mutual protestations of love.

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.
