: Right Royal Company

Fifty Years of the Royal Ballet
It's their anniversary month: ' The Royal' as they're known in the dance world now, were 'The Islington dancers' back in the 30s when their home was Sadler's Wells. Six girls 50 years ago, today there are two companies, a major school, and well over 100 dancers. This is the story of how 'Vic-Wells' became today's Royal Ballet and premier classical company of the Western world. It's a picture of a ' 'day' in their life, a 'day' that in fact lasts several months, and follows preparations for Kenneth MacMillan 's Isadora, premiered three weeks ago. It's a rare chance to see behind the scenes: the tensions, hard work, laughter, and a myriad of rehearsals for all sorts of dance works in their repertoire.
Taking part:
Dame Ninette de Valois Dame Margot Fonteyn Sir Frederick Ashton Sir Robert Helpmann Michael Somes and past and present members of the company.
Merle Park as Isadora with Julian Hosking
Stephen Jefferies , Derek Rencher and actress Mary Miller

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
