Paul Vaughan visits Shanghai to report on the cultural life of this great city where ' all art is politics '.
Once described as ' The Paris of the Orient' in the days when Europeans ran it as a foreign settlement, Shanghai witnessed the birth of the Chinese Communist Party and was the centre of support for the recently discredited ' Gang of Four '.
I: is here that the most famous Peking Opera Troupe is based, and the School for Acrobats. Shanghai also boasts a conservatory for western music, a ballet school and the largest film studios in China.
How have the arts managed to survive the upheavals of the cultural revolution and the iron rule of Madame Mao ? Are there signs of a more liberal attitude by the authorities to theatre, music and literature?
Paul Vaughan attempts to find some of the answers. Producer BRIAN BARFIELD
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.
