: Talking of Theatre

Kurt Weill and Bert Brecht
In the early 30s the music of Kurt Weill for The Threepenny Opera and for Mahagonny had an exciting appeal. In the 60s the writer Brecht is more noted and quoted. Talking about the works of collaboration and introducing the music is Michael Geliot, who produced The Rise and Fall of Mahagonny at the Sadler's Wells Theatre and is about to direct another work of this early period during the Edinburgh Festival: Happy End.

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
