Against the Odds
The first in a series of Review films about the theatre outside London looks at actors and their situation.
The average actor leads an arduous and erratic life working less than half the year and earning much less than the average unskilled worker. The odds against achieving success and financial security are enormous.
Review went to the Belgrade
Theatre, Coventry, to find out from a cross-section of the company what makes them do it. Directed by TERENCE DIXON
Nucleus is unique amongst modern jazz bands. A quintet made up of the cream of British modern jazz talent. It is backed by a powerful rock rhythm section including John Marshall , voted top instrumentalist of last year by Melody Maker. Their music is powerful and inventive, and leader Ian Carr 's new work ' Solar Plexus ' has interested both jazz and classical enthusiasts.
Review invites Carr and Nucleus into the studio to give a sample of their special blend of formal jazz and progressive pop.


Directed By: Terence Dixon
Unknown: John Marshall

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.
