: Review

Introduced by James Mossman

Georgia Brown sings Brecht
'You say that girls may stnp with your permission,
You draw the line dividing art from sin,
First you must solve the problem of starvation,
Then start your talking, thats where we begin'
Some lyrics from The Threepenny Opera, the best known of the Brecht-Weill musicals.
The songs that Brecht wrote with Kurt Weill in the 20s still retain their power and popularity, and Georgia Brown is their foremost British interpreter. For Review she recreates the world of the Berlin cabaret, its mixture of satire and kitsch out of which these songs were born.

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.
