The Lion and the Dragon

The British in China 1920-1939 The first of two programmes. Narrator Christopher Cook
It was business which took the British to China, not dreams of imperial conquest. And it was western business wealth which created the celebrated waterfront at Shanghai, the 'Paris of the East' as it was known in the years between the two World Wars.
For Shanghai was a modern, luxurious city, as some of the men and women who made their lives there in the 1920s and 30s recall in this programme. For the British 'missey', there was a household of servants, for
'master' the club, and for the sailors who found themselves in this greatest of seaports, every opportunity to fall from grace in one of the many notorious 'cabarets' with their White Russian 'taxi-dancers'. Research SHIRLEY WHITTON

German Festival

The Ballad of the Unknown Composer: The Berlin Years of Kurt Weill written by ALEXANDER GOEHR and BARRIE GAVIN
'I don't give a damn for posterity - 1 write for today.'
(KURT WEILL)
At one time, it looked as if posterity wouldn't give a damn for him either. 'Just a collaborator of Bert Brecht or a Berlin cabaret song-writer' were the official judgments.
But the career of Kurt Weill is a much more complex and subtle story. He was a unique and remarkable artist.
This survey of his career in Germany has extracts not only from his collaborations with Brecht, but also from his early symphonic music and from little-known operas like Royal Palace, Die Burgschaft and Der Silbersee. with Anja Silja , Lucy Peacock Philip Langridge , Michael Rippon , Gunter Reich
John van Kesteren and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Gary Bertini

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.
