Omnibus at the Proms


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Introduced by Jane Glover
Dance - the theme of the 93rd season of Henry Wood
Promenade concerts - is a subject close to the heart of tonight's conductor, Isaiah Jackson , who has worked with the Dance Theatre of Harlem and next month becomes the music director of the Royal Ballet.
The main work in tonight's concert is Copland: Dance
Symphony, described by its composer as 'one of the things-called-symphonies-that-aren't'. It was written for a never-staged vampire ballet called Grohg.
Before conducting it, Isaiah Jackson talks to Jane Glover about his love of music for dance.
First in the programme comes Rachmaninov:
Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini in which the soloist is the Irish-born pianist
Philip Martin , for whom the Piece is fast becoming a speciality: 'You need a stretch like an octopus! Rachmaninov had huge hands!' with the BBC Concert Orchestra leader MARTIN LOVEDAY Lighting DAN CRANEFIELD Sound JOHN CAULFIELD Executive producers KENNETH CORDEN and RODNEY GREENBERG
Directors PETER MANIURA (Rachmaninov) and JONATHAN FULFORD (Copland)

About this project

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.
