The arts in action
Introduced by Humphrey Burton Signs of Vigorous Life
The New German Cinema
'It is a national film movement, and the strength of it is it's daring enough to be national cinema again.' (WERNER HERZOG )
' We went to cinemas and what we saw was Manhattan, Hong Kong, Paris. We wondered, why aren't we ever happening on a screen.'
' We are making films which have something to say - films born out of our own life and experience.'
Forty years after Nazism destroyed the German cinema, a small group of young directors is putting Germany back on the world's cinematic map.
Omnibus looks at the dramatic rise of this new film movement in the context of the vacuum which preceded it; the cinema as a mirror of a new Germany. With five of the leading directors: Rainer Werner Fassbinder
WernerHerzog, VolkerSchlondorff Hans Jiirgen Syberberg Wim Wenders
And extracts from their films (many of which have not yet been shown in Britain), including Fear Eats the Soul, The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser , The Lost Honour of Katherina Blum , The Confessions of Winifred Wagner , Kings of the Road.
Film editor TONY HEAVEN
Executive producer BARRIE GAVIN Written and produced by PETER ADAM

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
