Watch Sound of Musicals with Neil Brand (1/3) live on the web

The composer and author reveals how the modern shape of the musical was established through a series of pioneering works, examining Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein's Show Boat's bold look at America's racial divide in the 1920s.

He also explores innovative uses of songs that further the narrative, referencing Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's My Fair Lady, which made a star of Julie Andrews in the late 1950s.
