The Story of Musicals Series on BBC2 tomorrow

There's another chance to see the excellent The Story of Musicals three part series which was first aired a few months ago. 

The first episode will be broadcast tomorrow (Saturday 24th February) on BBC2 at 8:20 pm and covers how Britain has influenced musical theatre across the world, focusing on the years following the Second World War, when the West End was reclaimed from American domination. The programme also explores the successful partnership between lyricist Tim Rice and composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.

It features contributions from Cameron Mackintosh, Elaine Paige, Ron Moody, Bill Kenwright, Sheila Hancock, Harold Prince, Robert Stigwood, Tommy Steele, Paul Nicholas and Willy Russell.

This was a great series that was shown on BBC (not channel 4). It is one of the best documentries for musical theatre. Bring on more!!!!
