: Proms on Four. A Messiaen Tribute

In the mid-1970s George Benjamin studied composition with Olivier Messiaen at the Paris Conservatoire. Tonight at the Royal Albert Hall he conducts the Ensemble Modern in a concert dedicated to his former teacher, beginning with two of his own works - Palimpsest I and Palimpsest II - and his orchestration of an organ piece by the Baroque composer Nicolas de Grigny. Messiaen's monumental Des canyons aux étoiles completes the programme. Introduced by Tommy Pearson. Also broadcast live on Radio 3.

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.
