Composers, artists and music
- The Least of my Troubles - composer Stephen Oliver was set to become one of the leading composers of his generation who died far too young. In his too short life composed hits such as The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby (RSC), Blondel (with Tim Rice), and over forty operas. This tribute to Stephen would celebrate not only his music and compositions, but also his work on radio, other TV shows, and the illuminating book Friendships in Constant Repair.
- Cinderella - by Sir Peter Maxwell-Davies, composed in 1980. A children's opera, of which there were several in the repertoire and particularly with the established working relationship with Max from working together on other projects.
- Radio 3 Anniversary - The former BBC Third Programme relaunched as Radio 3 in September 1967. This television concept celebrates the anniversary of a radio show. It is as much behind-the-scenes as it looks at the output and how it adapted and refreshed. Interviews with presenters and those involved in the making and delivery of the Radio 3 product.
Why repurpose and restructure?
The ideas and concepts of the above shows were originated by Neil Anthony and Bryan Izzard and although they may have been originally tailored for a different audience, many remain as relevant today.
With renewed interest in the Bright Thoughts product there is a great potential for some projects to be reimagined and restructured for new audiences and with different markets in-mind.
