: Frederick Ashton -75 This Week

A Real Choreographer
When Ninette de Valois saw Frederick Ashton's first ballet, in 1926, she immediately congratu-lated his teacher, Marie Rambert, on having discovered ' a real choreographer Fifty-three years later, celebrating his 75th birthday, that is what Sir Frederick remains.
Frederick Ashton has created more than 50 major ballets for the Royal Ballet, and the companies from which it grew. His choreography has become the basis ot the English style of dancing which is epitomised by La fille mat gardée, one of his masterpieces. His achievement entitles him to stand with Bournonville, Petipa and Fokine, as one of the creators of classical ballet as we know it now. In this film, for the first time, he talks at length about his early life. and struggles, the creative influences on his work, his relationship with Margot Fonteyn, and the trauma of nerves and diffidence which afflicts him when he creates a new ballet.
In addition, he is seen dancing in Foyer de Danse (1932) and Cinderella, while Margot Fonteyn, Nadia Nerina, Merle Park, David Blair, Michael Coleman, Stanley Holden and many others are seen in excerpts from his works.
Finally, the programme offers a rare opportunity to Me Mr Frederick in the rehearsal room, perfecting and modifying the work of young dancers who come fresh to his ballets.

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.
