: Omnibus: The Salesman Goes to China

In 1949 playwright Arthur Miller created Willy Loman, the salesman who clings to the American dream. Thirty-five years later, Miller was invited to Peking to direct his play Death of a Salesman. He was quite prepared for catastrophe. For ten years the Chinese theatre had been closed, the companies arrested or dispersed, and only Mme Mao's 'eight permissible plays' could be staged. How would the actors cope today with a style of drama totally alien to their training and tradition? This film documents a remarkable meeting between two worlds as the Chinese company struggles to come to grips with the Loman family from Brooklyn. With illustrations from previous productions, including the classic Lee J Cobb version and the latest Willy Loman - Dustin Hoffman.

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.
