: A Night in Havana: Dizzy Gillespie in Cuba

A documentary celebration ofthe music of Dizzy Gillespie.
In the 1940s. bebop was bom. It was a time for daring musical innovation and at the heart of it was
John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie who introduced Afro-Cuban rhythms into American jazz. Music would never be the same again and norwould Dizzy himself. For 40 years he conducted a musical love-affair with Cuba, and then, in 1987, he was invited to the 5th International Jazz Festival in Havana.
Part travelogue and part intimate portrait, the film culminates in a concert with Cuban trumpeter Arturo Sandoval.
Director John Holland (1988) * FILM REVIEWS pages 69-76

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

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.
