Grand Guignol or High Drama? Gordon Stewart presents four programmes which take the lid off Italian verismo - its seething passions, heart-throbbing emotions and lurid violence, as expressed through some of the hottest sets of vocal chords in the business.
3: Fatal Passions. This programme looks at those characters with their fingers on auto-destruct, with excerpts from La Gioconda, Turandot, Madama Butterfly, Mefistofele, L'Arlesiana and La Fanciulla del
West. The voices include Gina Cigna. Scotto, Caballe, Simionato, Ponselle, Gigli, Siepi and Ruffo.

Music for Spaces
Playing Space. The theremin was used in many fifties B-movies and featured on the Beach Boys hit Good Vibrations. Today bands like
Portishead and Blur make music out of the ether with this remarkable creation. Bruce Woolly of the Radio Science Orchestra demonstrates how to play any instrument with a wave of the hand on the Midi theremin. And Tod Machover of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has been creating hyper-instruments which link human bodies to the composing power of a computer.
