: ' Tosca'

Act I of the Opera by Puccini
The action of Tosca 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 Scarp ia, 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.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
