Summer Review

Introduced by David Jones

Georgia Brown Sings Brecht
'You say that girls may strip with your permission
You draw the line dividing Art from Sin,
First you must solve the problem of starvation,
Then start your talking, that's where we begin '
Some lyrics from The Threepenny Opera, the best known of the Brecht-Weill musicals. The songs that Brecht wrote with Kurt Weill in the 20s still retain their power and popularity. Georgia Brown is their foremost British interpreter. For Review she recreates the world of the Berlin cabaret, its mixture of satire and kitsch out of which these songs were born.
(Radio Times People: page 5)

An Imaginary Friend
'All the litterati keep An Imaginary Friend...'
A couplet by W.H. Auden was the inspiration for an experiment in biography. Five writers were asked to tell the story of a man who has greatly influenced their life and work. Between them, Irene Handl, Elizabeth Bowen, V.S. Naipaul, John Betjeman and Peter Cook build up a portrait of John Woodby. The result is both an unusually candid biography and a revealing glimpse of the writer's craft in action.

Lifelines
A young girl looks back on a love affair which ended tragically and relives its best and worst moments. Lifelines, danced by William Louther and Naomi Lapzeson, is a short ballet written specially for Review by Bob Cohan, director of the Contemporary Dance Theatre.

Heather Beckers, Marie Betts, Ann Chapman, Catherine Collins, Jackie Dalton, Denise Fone, Lynda Herbert, Jane Herbert, Carolyn Heywood, Linda Jolliff, Lesley Judd, Kay Korda, Linda Lawrence, Sandy Penson, Wei Wei Wong, Bobby Bannerman, Iain Burton, Chris Cooper, Roger Finch, Richard Gough, Paul Guess, Harry Higham, Roger Howlett, Nigel Lythgoe, Colin Pilditch, Jeremy Robinson, Brian Rogers, Donald Torr, Kenneth Warwick, Trevor Willis

Starring Bruce Forsyth and The Four Tops, Mrs Mills

'At last,' said Bruce Forsyth when he was asked to appear in tonight's show, 'a chance to do something I've always wanted.' So tonight he appears in a role that previously only his cabaret audiences have seen - that of singer. Not only in a full-scale production number - as Mr Bojangle in Minstrel rig - but in a handful of straight ballads as well. So, at last, Bruce really is 'in charge.'

The Beat of the Brass

Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass march to the heartbeat of America on a musical journey through the length and breadth of the country
A programme recorded in America
First shown on BBC-1

Tonight's programme, filmed on location, aims at providing a musical parallel with the diverse yet unique images of America. So the Tijuana Brass play 'Cabaret' as the camera roams along some of the most famous pleasure streets-New York's Broadway, Chicago's State Street, and Fremont Street in Las Vegas.
In New Orleans 'Wall Street Rag' is heard against a background of the famous old-time jazz musicians. And ' California Girls' is played while 200 drummajorettes twirl their batons.
The musical safari also takes in a trip on the aerial tramway near Palm Springs and a visit to the Los Angeles Zoo.
Herb Alpert makes one of his rare appearances as a singer when wandering along the coastline near Malibu he serenades his wife with 'This guy's in love with you.'

Release

The weekly arts magazine

Have You Seen Manchester?
A new kind of cabaret opened at Manchester's University Theatre last Wednesday. It is devised by David Wright and based on hours of recordings of Mancunians plus the music, gags, and improvisations that characterise the Northern clubs.
Release shows scenes from the show against the background of the city that inspired it.

A Book for Christmas
Three authors of newly published books for children talk about what drew them away from writing fiction for adults to fantasies for children.
Nell Dunn, Roald Dahl, Jonathan Gathorne-Hardy
in the chair, Ronald Eyre

Juke Baroque Jury
A new gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London offers a colourful display of old musical instruments and a juke box of recordings from the collection. An attractive entertainment - but why, say some, may you not play the instruments?

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
