The love-potion that Tristan and Isolda drank together in the first act still holds the lovers in its power. Isolda, now the wife of King -Mark, waits in the dark of the castle garden for Tristan to come to her while the King is at the hunt. The warnings of Brangane, Isolda's woman, to beware of a plot to betray her are ignored and Tristan is signalled to approach. The impassioned love scene which follows is at last interrupted by Kurvonal, Tristan's henchman, bidding Tristan fly. It is too late. The hunting paity enters, headed by the King, who is thus witness of Tristan's treachery and Isolda's guilt. He bitterly reproaches Tristan, on whom Melot, his faithless friend and betrayer, draws his sword. Tristan is severely wounded and falls as though dying into Isolda's arms.

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.
