: Lulu

An introduction by George Steiner Lulu is a woman with a power of fatal attraction, a woman like Pandora, rash enough to unleash all evil on the men whom she encounters. After being a great beauty, she ends in a garret. Her fate is to be killed by Jack the Ripper. Wedekind's expressionistic dramas have haunted the 20th century imagination, notably through Pabst's famous short film, Pandora's Box, starring Louise Brooks , (to be screened by BBC2 next month) and then the opera Lulu by ALBAN BERG , a work left unfinished at his death and completed in controversial circumstances a few years ago.
In this programme GEORGE STEINER , Extraordinary Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge and Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Geneva, discusses the genius of Alban Berg 's opera.
Producer Gotz Friedrich 's new production of Lulu will be relayed by Radio 3 tomorrow at 7.0 pm live from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
