: ' LA BOHEME '

Act I of the Opera by Puccini
Scene : The Student's Attic
. Cast
Conductor, Robert Ainsworth
Performed by the Imperial League of Opera from the Empire Theatre, Liverpool
Puccini's operatic version of Miirger's tale of Bohemian life in Paris is so full of incident that only by some such staccato method as Mr. Jinyle's can the happenings of the first act be compressed within the allotted space. He would have told the story something like this: Attic -Christmas Eve-fingers blue-no fire, no food. Burn Marcel's picture, Crossing Red Sea ? No, smell awful. Rodolfo's tragedy ? Yes-noble sacrifice, ignoble fire. Transformation ! Enter Schaunard, musician, stroke of luck-food, drink, fuel. Toasts. But who comes ? Landlord, rent overdue ; confound the fellow-push him out. Money not for rent—off to Cafe Momus-all but Rodolfo, must finish task: duty first, cafe after. Knock, Mimi from upstairs-tiny hand frozen-they call me Mimiattraction-love-join the others.

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.
