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.
PRINCE IGOR, that Opera of ancient pageantry and Oriental colour, is Borodin's most famous work. The Dances, of which the music is now to bo heard, occur in the Second Act, when Igor, a prisoner in the camp of a nomad tribe, the Polovtsy, is as a tribute to his courage invited to be present at a festival.
THE LAKE OF SWANS, Tchaikovsky's first Ballet, was written for performance at the Imperial Theatre at Moscow fifty years ago. In spite of the channing music, the work, as a whole, owing to the poorness of the production, was then not very successful. Later, the composer greatly altered tho music.
The story of the Ballet is about the love of a young Knight for a maiden, whom a wicked sorcerer has changed into a swan. There is obviously room here for graceful and lyrical music, as well as for more dramatic and exciting movements.

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.
