Synopsis

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 Search for Nijinsky's Rite of Spring
Paris, 1913 - the premiere of The Rite of Spring, with choreography by Vaslav Nijinsky to a score by Igor Stravinsky. The theatre audience rioted. After four performances and a few more in London, the ballet vanished. Now, thanks to the detective work of Millicent Hodson and Kenneth Archer , the choreography, costumes and sets have been re-created. Tonight's programme tells the story of the search for the lost ballet and, 75 years later,
Nijinsky's The Rite of Spring comes to life again in a performance by the Joffrey Ballet.
Produced by JUDY KINBERG and THOMAS GRIMM

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.
