: The Bolshoi Ballet

This special "Omnibus" presents an exclusive insight into the most famous ballet company in the world.
With unique archive film, interviews with leading figures in Soviet ballet, and specially filmed extracts from their present repertoire, this documentary charts the past, Present and future of the Bolshoi. Omnibus cameras were allowed unprecedented access to company rehearsals in Moscow, and the stars of tomorrow appear in sequences shot at the famous Moscow Choreographic Institute, the Bolshoi Ballet School. At the centre of this film are two legends of the ballet world. The Bolshoi's Artistic Director and Chief Choreographer Yuri Grigorovich appears for the first time in an interview for British television; and Galina Ulanova talks about her distinguished career as the most feted dancer in Soviet ballet. Past and recent stars of the Bolshoi, including the great names of Messerer, Plisetskaya, Vassiliev, Maximova and Lavrovsky add their own reminiscences. Also featured are members of the present company, including Prima Ballerina Assoluta Natalya Bessmertnova ballerinas Ludmilla Semenyaka and Nina Ananiashvili and male stars Irek Mukhamedov and Andris Liepa
With extracts from "Giselle", "Don Quixote", "The Golden Age", "Spartacus", "Ivan the Terrible", "Raymonda", "The Seagull" and many other ballets.

: XIV European Athletics Championships

from Stuttgart Introduced by Desmond Lynam
They don't come much better than CRAM, KOCH and THOMPSON so if they're not worth waiting up for, any late conversions to sport seem unlikely. Great finals this afternoon with the field events as good here as anywhere in the world.
There's a better than average chance of catching the National Anthem well before closedown.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
