The Ritz

starring Jack Weston Rita Moreno
On the run from his murderous brother-in-law, Gaetano Proclo takes refuge in a Manhattan bathhouse
- the Ritz. Unfortunately for the chubby fugitive, the Ritz is madcap, gay and one of its clients dotes on fat men. This outrageous farce is based on the successful Broadway show and features many of the original cast including Rita Moreno as the hopelessly untalented pop singer who provides the Ritz's hilarious cabaret.
Screenplay by TERRANCE MCNALLY based upon his play. The Ritz Produced by DENIS O'DELL
Directed by RICHARD LESTER

Chiara and Me and Him

(Io, Chiara e lo Scuro) starring
Francesco Nuti as Francesco
Giuliana de Sio as Chiara
This off-beat comedy reunites the successful team of prizewinning director Maurizio Ponzi and popular cabaret star
Francesco Nuti in one of the greatest Italian cinema successes of the 1980s.
Francesco is obsessed by billiards. He is ecstatic when he beats the local champion, Scuro. But Scuro demands a return match and before long Francesco finds himself in trouble - 'borrowing' from his employers to meet his debts. And, as if that weren't enough, there's the pretty girl downstairs whose saxophone case is identical to Francesco's cue case.
Screenplay by FRANCO FERRINI
ENRICO OLDOINI , FRANCESCO NUTI MAURIZIO PONZI
Directed by MAURIZIO PONZI (An Italian film with English subtitles)

Almeida Festival

Caven in Cabaret
Michael Berkeley introduces the last programme from this year's Almeida Festival.
Ingrid Caven was already a major German film actress often starring in the movies of Fassbinder, when she first appeared as a singer on the Paris stage. Critics hailed her at once as 'the natural heir to Brecht, Dietrich and Piaf. In a series of acclaimed one-woman shows since then, she has established herself as a unique artist. Two weeks ago, Ingrid Caven made her
London debut with a wide range of songs - humorous, wistful, ironic - most of them written specially for her. Lighting GEOFF RATHBONE Sound VIC GODRICH
Production assistant FIONA SEATTER Directed by JONATHAN FULFORD

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
Directed by BARRIE GAVIN

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.
