Peter and the Wolf - a Prokofiev Fantasy


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.
Conductor Claudio
Abbado had the original idea forthis unusual visual version of Prokofiev's popular musical story, Peter and the Wolf. Co-directed by Roger Law , one of the creators of Spitting Image, the film uses a combination of puppets and actors (Roy Hudd stars as the composer himself, and 1 0-year-old newcomer Henry Feagins as Peter) to create a visual story which matches the musical language of the piece.
Many of the puppets are life-size, and other roles are played by the innovative Theatre de Complicité. Abbado conducts the Chamber Orchestra of Europe playing Prokofiev's March in B flat minor, the Overture on Hebrew Themes and the Classical Symphony as well as his children's classic.
The narration is by Sting.

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.
