John Barrowman profiles and interviews the phenomenally successful musicals specialist Andrew Lloyd Webber, whose version of Wilkie Collins's Victorian thriller "The Woman in White" opens next month in London. The series reappraises his music and explores his business empire. This first part looks at Lloyd Webber's debt to Broadway, and how he beat the Americans at their own game.
3/4. Nancy Wilson continues a profile of veteran jazz pianist George Shearing, who is 85 this month. This instalment recalls some of the artist's instrumental collaborations, including musical ventures with Stephane Grappelli, the Robert Farnon Orchestra and Marian MacPartland.
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.
