Sekt, Smoke, Satire

The Latin Seducers
In the fifth of six programmes tracing the history of cabaret, Robert Ziegler visits the famously nocturnal city of Barcelona. It was here that the nationalist ardour and Parisian influence combined to create something inspirational. Spain also bequeathed a more passionate legacy, albeit by way of South America. The dance was called the tango, and the man who was to become the embodiment of the tango singer was Carlos Gardel.

Sett, Smoke, Satire

Robert Ziegler 's six-part series exploring the songs of the smoky, often sexy and slightly sleazy world of cabaret
2: Bienvenue. Welcome:
Beginning in the humming modern boulevards and nightclubs of 19th-century Paris - where songs were first used as a means of social and political protest-by 1881 the visionary feat of reconstructing the face (and the underbelly) of the capital is complete. Aristide Bruant fills the Chat Noir with his melancholy ballads, and, by the dawn of the new century, the flavour of cafeconcerts and cabarets has permeated what we think of as the French chanson.

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.
