BBC Proms 2007


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.
LIVE Alexandra Wiison presents the annual Prom given by the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, live from the Royai Albert Hall. The concert opens with a wild orchestral showpiece, demonstrating the sheer technical brilliance of the young players. And to end, Shostakovich's epic symphony tests their collective musical stamina.
Alexander Kobrin (piano), National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, conductor Mark Elder
Aaron Jay Kemis New Era Dance (first UK performance) Prokofiev Piano Concerto No 1
7.00 Twenty Minutes: The Concert Pianist
An excerpt from Conrad Williams 's 2006 novel, read by Robert Bathurst. Pianist Philip Morahan can no longer play the piano. There are too many distractions - his agent, his girlfriend, his protégé, his reviews - all of which overwhelm him in a poignant and comic way.
7.20 Shostakovich Symphony No 7 (Leningrad) A delayed broadcast of this Prom is on BBC2 at 6.45pm

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.
