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.

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.
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.
