BBC Proms 2000


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 from the Royal Albert Hall, London, this season's Shostakovich focus continues with his symphony composed as "a Soviet artist's reply to just criticism". No less personally felt are Mahler's songs on the death of children, while Bernstein reaffirms the lighter side of life. Dmitri Hvorostovsky (baritone).
Bournemouth SO/Yakov Kreizberg Bernstein Suite: On the Waterfront
Mahler Kindertotenlieder
7.55 Twenty Minutes: Performing Art
The second in a series of eight postcards from the Victoria and Albert Museum exploring the shared worlds of art and music. Today Christopher Cook talks to Michael Snodin about a page from the 18th-century Franco-Italian album of drawings by Sir William Chambers.
8.15 Shostakovich Symphony No 5 Repeated Tuesday 1 August 2pm

In today's Crossing Continents (11.00am R4) Tim Whewett visits Mongolia (above) where members of the Liberal Women's Brain Poof are the driving force behind the introduction of democracy. Did Whewett suddenly feel like a man in crisis, perhaps? He shouldn't: he's an excellent reporter, as this fascinating documentary reveals.
In this afternoon's extremely funny play, two girls set up The Writers' Block Workshop (2.15pm R4) with the ulterior motive of attracting sensitive, creative, heterosexual men. Their cunning plan goes awry, however, when a glamorous siren joins the course.
Later, Tim Martow travels through California to encounter the Internet Dreamers (8.00pm R4) who first conjured up the www.
But you might prefer to tisten to tonight's Prom (7.00pm R3), culminating in Shostakovich's massive Fifth Symphony. SG

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.
