The Light of Experience

The sixth of eight programmes Fania Fenelon
FANIA FENELON , a singer and cabaret artiste, spent three-and-a-half years of the Second World War in the French Resistance. She sang in Paris nightclubs reserved for German soldiers and in between singing, talked to them and spied on them.
She was arrested, tortured for three months and sent to Auschwitz where she was recruited into the camp orchestra.
Now an American television company has made a film of her life-story-but because of the casting of Vanessa Redgrave , a Palestinian Liberation Organisation supporter, as Fania, Madame Fenelon attempted to stop the film being made. In tonight's programme she tells her story and explains how she came to terms with the film.

Cabaret

The feature film starring Liza Minnelli
Who tells RADIO TIMES '
Who could ever forget Sally Bowles ? I have always felt very fortunate to have been given the rare and delicious opportunity to portray someone so totally unique, so strong and well-rounded as a character. I always knew I was doing something special with Cabaret.

Who tells RADIO TIMES
*
I knew Christopher Isherwood and had met him beforehand, so I was very conscious of the fact that I was portraying him and very proud to be doing it. I remember Cabaret as being one of those really happy times when everyone got on. ' Bob Fosse 's brilliant musical adaptation of Christopher Isherwood 's Goodbye to Berlin opens a new season of well-known literary works set to music.
A bitter-sweet and ambivalent love affair, between cabaret singer Sally Bowles and the naive young Englishman she takes under her wing. develops in the decadent Berlin cafe society of the 30s, while violence in the streets escalates so smoothly, the inhabitants hardly notice - unless they happen to be Jews.
Screenplay by JAY ALLEN Produced by CY FEUER
Choreographed and directed by BOB FOSSE

The Gypsy Princess

A new film of the famous operetta Die Csdrddsfiirstin
Music by EMMERICH KALMAN
Libretto by L. STEIN and B. JENBACH Set in Budapest and Vienna during the closing period of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, this is the story of a beautiful cabaret star called Sylva Varescu. The operetta opens at her farewell concert in Budapest, where she has earned the nickname 'The Czardas Princess' in honour of her expertise in singing the fiery rhythms of the Hungarian Czardas dance. Sylva is off to tour America, but Prince Edwin von Lippert-Weylersheim, asks her to stay and marry him instead. Edwin's step-mother wants him to marry his cousin, Countess Stasi, and goes to great lengths to break up his unsuitable relationship with Sylva.

The Lively Arts

Behind the Mask
The Theatre Music of Henry Purcell Conducted and introduced by Raymond Leppard
' I believe that though he lived by the church and state, he lived for the theatre.'
The reputation of Henry Purcell (1658-95), perhaps England's greatest composer, rests mainly on Ms music for church and royal occasions. Yet over half his output was written for the theatre, including the famous ' Lament' from his opera Dido and Aeneas, and 'Fairest Isle' from King Arthur, both featured in this programme. But the theatre music also includes dances and songs full of the fun and vitality of the Restoration stage.
RAYMOND LEPPARD has devised a compilation in the style of a cabaret entertainment which he has called ' Virtue Rewarded' or 'Good Luck at Last.' with April Cantelo (soprano) Robin Leggate (tenor) Ian Caddy (baritone)

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.
