The Strand is the home of arts on the BBC World Service. The Strand covers the most exciting and interesting music, books, films, architecture, dance, theatre and cultural events and big name interviews from all corners of the globe.
It’s on once a week and in various versions. They don’t always talk performance, but it is worth a listen, especially for nuggets about world theatre. You can checkout what they are covering every week by clicking on the image below.
