BBC Proms 2003


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.
The BBC Symphony Orchestra's chief conductor, Leonard Slatkin , lifts his baton in London's Royal Albert Hall to conduct a programme selected entirely from the rich repertoire of Russian orchestral music. Highlights include Sergei Prokofiev 's score for the ballet Romeo and Juliet, the dawn prelude to Musorgsky's epic opera Khovanshchina, and Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No 1, with exciting young German soloist Christian Tetzlaff.
Introduced by Charles Hazlewood who, in the interval, is joined by special guests, including tonight's soloist Christian Tetzlaff and Shostakovich expert Elizabeth Wilson. The concert is also broadcast on Radio 3.

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.
