Puccini's Tosca dates from 1900. It is a sombre tragedy based on the play written for Sarah Bernhardt by Sardou, the most successful of French dramatists of the latter half of the nineteenth century.
The story takes place in Rome at the time of the Napoleonic wars. The scene of Act I is the inside of a church-. Cavaradossi, an artist, is painting a Madonna. As soon as he is alone, an escaped prisoner comes out of a chapel near at hand and asks for help. Cavaradossi recognises him as his friend Angelotti, and furthers his escape. No sooner has he gone than the voice of Tosca is heard. She and Cavaradossi are in love, and Tosca, having heard voices, and suspecting an assignation, is jealous. Cavaradossi dispels her doubts.
Now Scarpia. chief of police, enters in search of Angelotti, who has been traced to this church. He suspects Cavaradossi of having aided the prisoner and, being himself in love with Tosca, decides to order the arrest of the painter and thus be rid of a rival.

Grieg's Lyric Suite is made up of certain piano pieces which lend themselves admirably to transcription for orchestra. They were first arranged by the conductor Anton Seidl , and later re-arranged even more admirably by Grieg himself. The suite is among the most popular of all Grieg's orchestral music.

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
