BBC Proms 97


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.
Three Proms themes come together tonight at the Royal Albert Hall - the anniversaries of Brahms and Schubert, and folk-music inspiration which is found in Chopin's second piano concerto, played by French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Brahms's vigorous choral writing makes an effective contrast to the serenity and repose of Schubert's symphonic Mass - a worthy successor to Beethoven.

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.
