Some musicians claim that Gianni Schicchi is Puccini's finest musical effort, and it would be difficult to find a happier or more comprehending union of words and music than in this wittily sparkling one act comic opera. The text was written by Puccini's great friend Giachino Forzano , a playwright of renown in Italy, and the story has the true ring of a mediaeval farce. It was first produced in 1918 in New York, together with two other one-act operas which are now not often performed.
Gianni Schicchi is, however, very popular in all Continental opera houses, though in England it has not thoroughly endeared itself to English audiences. One reason for which it is difficult to find credence has been put forward for this neglect. It has been more or less authoritatively stated that the British public shies at attempting to pronounce the title of it at the Box Office, and in self-defence at the last minute books for something else-say, Carmen-instead. If it is possible there be any such, for their information the correct pronunciation is, roughly, Janny Skeeky.

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.
