Last Waltz In Vienna
On Saturday 26 February 1938, 17-year-old Georg Klaar went to his first ball in Vienna. It was also his last. Two weeks later Hitler annexed Austria. The comfortable world of Georg and his family was utterly destroyed.
' Originally I thought it would be nice for my children to hear about their family, a family they never met, never knew. That was the beginning. Then I found out that you can't just write a family story....'
Tonight Georg Klaar , now George Clare , tells his story. Based on his widely acclaimed autobiography, the film traces the fortunes of three generations of Viennese Jews through a troubled period of Austrian history. It begins in Vienna in the 1860s and ends in September 1942 in a tiny village in France from which his parents were to make their last journey. It is this small village which is at the heart of George Clare 's search for his family past - a personal attempt to record the rich cultural heritage which he absorbed and to lay the ghost of a recurring nightmare.

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.
