BBC 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.
Tonight's Prom marks anniversaries of two popular nationalist composers - Grieg and Tchaikovsky - but begins with Stravinsky's scintillating ballet-score Petrushka, in the original 1911 version.
During the interval, there is a visit to Bergen to sample some of the novel way s in which
Norway is celebrating Grieg's life and work.
Part 2 comprises four songs by Grieg and the concert ends with Tchaikovsky's Suite No 3.
The BBC Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Alexander Lazarev , and the soloist in the Grieg songs is the Finnish soprano, Karita Mattila , winner of the 1983 Cardiff Singer of the World Competition. "They represent the typical Grieg style, very romantic, very melodic, with lovely phrasing - a treat for a singer," she says. "They are quite intimate pieces, reflective rather than bravura. I love them and I'm very proud to sing them at the Proms." James Naughtie introduces the concert.

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.
